Updated: Jun 18, 2020

The transition seasons are some of the most beautiful times of the year. From bright and pleasant springtime to the misty fall, there's no denying that the weather during these periods is fantastic. However, along with the dozens of blooming flowers, you might start feeling a strange tickle in the air.

Dreaded seasonal allergies start with that slight tickle in the air, and before you know it, you and your household are all sniffling and sneezing. These dreaded allergies bring with them a whole host of cold-like symptoms that can leave you running ragged.

Let's delve into what we know about seasonal allergies and their symptoms, causes, and treatments. What Seasonal Allergies Look Like

Seasonal allergies can look like a cold. If the same cold keeps occurring every year around the same time, you’ll know that seasonal shifts are causing these symptoms. These symptoms usually occur without warning and can include the following:

· Itchy throat · Sneezing · Runny nose · Congestion · Repeated coughing · Watery and itchy eyes

These symptoms seem minor but can disrupt your work and make your life miserable for two weeks. They usually tend to stop happening in late adulthood, with children often suffering the most.
