SEASONAL SPRING ALLERGIC RHINITIS: A COMMON ISSUE
SCHAUMBURG EAR, NOSE, THROAT & ALLERGY IS READY TO HELP.
It doesn’t matter whether your allergies are related to temperature fluctuations or changes in the seasonal flora, Schaumburg ENT can help. This year is going to be a tough one for allergy sufferers. Early pollination may cause an increase in nasal congestion, sore throats, and itchy, watery eyes. Spring is notorious for tree pollen problems and mild winters can bring on springtime allergies early! Mold spores may multiply due to the recent damp weather. Indeed, the damp weather may also expand the grass pollen season that has its greatest impact in late spring.
February is the most common month for cold and flu season to take hold, causing patients acute discomfort, but seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever), may seriously affect a person’s quality of life over a longer-term. Poorly controlled allergy problems can actually predispose certain patients to sinus and ear infections, sleep pattern problems, and decreased productivity at school or at work.
Symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis include:
- Itchy, watery, red eyes
- Itching or chronic tickle in the nose, throat, or mouth
- Nasal congestion
- Runny nose or post-nasal drip
- Dark circles under the eyesw
