Allergies can be a disruptive force in fall and spring, but your symptoms may resemble those of other comparable conditions like chronic sinusitis, the cold, or COVID. Therefore, it is important to take note of your spring allergy symptoms and schedule an appointment with an allergist to test you for common allergens.

Do I have allergies?

There are many different types of allergies out there, and yet symptoms are often similar no matter what you're allergic to. It doesn't matter if your allergies are in the spring, summer, fall, winter, or all year long -- you need to know what your allergy symptoms are so you can receive allergy treatment if necessary.

Seasonal allergies: The cause of itchy eyes, congestion, and more

Seasonal allergies are a concern for many people in North and South Carolina. In the summer, grass and tree pollen allergies are common. In the fall, ragweed and pigweed are predominant, and grass counts are still high from the summer. Winters in this region are notable for mold and dust allergies. Mold often grows in damp, moist areas. Dust allergies become common when we close up our homes and the heat kicks dust up.

Symptoms are often similar whether you are allergic to mold, dust, or pollen. An allergy test can help determine the appropriate course of treatment.

Mild allergy symptoms can include:

  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Rashes
  • Congestion

Moderate allergy symptoms can include:

  • Itchiness
  • Difficulty breathing

Serious allergy symptoms, often resulting from anaphylaxis, include:

  • Itchiness of the eyes or face
  • Swelling of the lips, tongue or throat
  • Wheezing or difficulty breathing
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Mental confusion, anxiety or loss of consciousness

If you or your child are prone to anaphylaxis, you should have a plan in place in case a severe allergic reaction occurs. The primary treatment for anaphylaxis is epinephrine (adrenaline).
