Summer Allergies Getting You Down?

Flowers and summer allergies

As we come up on the month of August, summer is in full swing, and while it’s hotter outside, allergies are still around. This is due to the prevalence of similar allergy triggers. Even if you’ve never had allergies before, they can come at any time. With this in mind, the doctors at ENT & Allergy Specialists are here to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your seasonal allergies.

Common Cause of Summer Allergies

One of the most common summer allergy triggers is pollen. While pollen is often responsible for a plethora of springtime allergies, pollen remains a common trigger. Symptoms of a pollen allergy include nasal congestion, sinus pressure, runny nose, and itchy/watery eyes. If you have experienced these symptoms this spring or summer, you may have a pollen allergy.

In addition to pollen, there are many other outdoor catalysts for allergy symptoms. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, mold, grass, and other plants are also responsible. Symptoms for these triggers are similar to pollen; however, these can include postnasal drip, cough, fatigue, and sneezing.

Do you have allergies? A cold? Or could it be something else?

Summer allergy symptoms can easily be mistaken for colds, food intolerances or other ailments,” said Dr. Foggs, of the ACAAI. “If your symptoms are persistent and lasting for more than two weeks you should see your allergist for proper testing, diagnosis and treatment.

Often, allergy symptoms are mistaken for another problem, such as a cold, or a food intolerance. If you have had any of the aforementioned symptoms and believe you may be suffering from summer allergies, ask your physician for more information.
