What is a Seasonal Allergy?

According to the National Library of Medicine, an "allergy is described as an exaggerated response from the body’s immune system to otherwise inert substances present in the environment." 

What Causes Seasonal Allergies?

Seasonal allergies can occur when you breathe in something you are allergic to in your environment. The American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology shares that certain plants pollinate in spring, summer and fall which can trigger an allergic response. Aside from seasonal pollen, other environmental allergies may be caused by: 

  • dust mites
  • pet dander
  • mold 

What are the Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies?

Symptoms of seasonal allergies can vary from mild to severe and can include sneezing, postnasal drip, watery and itchy eyes, headache, wheezing, coughing and fatigue. 

5 Things That May Help Seasonal Allergies

1. Avoidance

By keeping your car windows rolled up, windows shut at home and changing your clothes after spending time outdoors, you can minimize your interaction with environmental substances that may trigger an allergic response.

2. Quercetin

Quercetin may be able to prevent immune cells from releasing histamines, the chemicals that cause allergic reactions. Due to this, a 2016 study suggests that quercetin may be used in the treatment of allergic disorders.

3. Probiotics

For adults with rhinitis, asthma and atopic dermatitis, probiotics may help reduce the duration and morbidity of allergy symptoms, according to research on the prevention and treatment of allergies published in 2021. The studies focused on Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium spp., and it's important to note that the studies emphasized the need for patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle and gut microbiome, since these factors influenced positive results. 

4. Clean Your Home

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, there’s a good chance that indoor allergens could exacerbate your symptoms. In addition to allergic rhinitis, dust mite allergies can cause asthma and eczema. On top of that, you might be tracking outdoor pollen into your home during the spring from the bottom of your shoes. You can minimize allergens in your home by removing shoes before you enter your home and dusting, vacuuming and laundering your sheets regularly.
