Common Signs You Have Seasonal Allergies

A person can suffer from several different types of allergies, and seasonal allergies are among the most common. Some of the most common seasonal allergies people suffer from come from pollen, grass, or mold that are intertwined with the changes in weather. However, some people might have seasonal allergy symptoms and believe they might have something more serious like COVID-19. Continue reading and find out the common signs you have seasonal allergies.

You Have the Symptoms

The easiest way to tell if you have seasonal allergies is by knowing what the common symptoms are. If you are suffering from the following, then you likely have seasonal allergies:

  • Sneezing
  • Running or stuffy nose
  • Watery or itchy eyes
  • Ear congestion
  • Headache
  • Coughing

While you may have these symptoms, you may be worried that you might have something more. A good way to tell that you might have something more serious is by having these symptoms:

  • A fever
  • Sore throat
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Aches and pain
  • A severe headache

They Revolve Around the Seasons

You may also notice that you tend to feel a certain way at different times of the year. The spring, summer, and fall tend to be the times of the year when people are most affected by outdoor allergies. If you notice that you have allergies during these seasons, then you are likely dealing with seasonal allergies.

How to Reduce Triggers

To reduce triggers, there are several steps you can take. You can keep your windows closed when allergy levels are high, change your clothes after spending time outside, and change your air filter regularly. By making these changes, you can help eliminate common allergy symptoms.

See an Allergist

Medication is also an important aspect of reducing allergy triggers. If are suffering from any of the common sign you have seasonal allergies, see a Houston allergist. By seeing a doctor, you will be able to get tested to find out what you are allergic to and get the necessary medical treatment in the form of shots, pills, nasal spray, or drops.

Seasonal allergies can be an annoying condition to live with, but the key to reducing symptoms is to take the necessary steps to be prepared.
