Pollen Allergies are Back! Are You One of the Millions Allergic to Spring?


Blossoming trees make spring beautiful, but they also spread pollen through the air and into our eyes, sinuses, and lungs. And that pollen can quickly turn spring flowers from a seasonal joy into a nuisance.

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, know you’re not alone. Pollen allergies are some of the most common allergies. Yet, because people’s allergy symptoms are unique, it can be difficult to know for sure if it’s springtime allergies giving you watery eyes and a stuffy nose or something like the common cold.

What Are Allergy Symptoms?

Allergies are caused when your immune system overreacts to a harmless substance, such as pet dander or pollen. Your body sees these allergens as dangerous and starts an immune response to rid the body of them. This natural response results in your allergy symptoms, including a stuffy nose, sneezing, watery eyes, and even hives.

But before you can start to treat your allergy symptoms, you must identify what causes them. Knowing your allergens allows you to build a treatment plan specific to your allergies. The most effective method to identify allergens is through allergy testing. At Wyndly, we offer at-home testing kits that require only one finger stick. Order yours today.

What Are the Common Allergy Symptoms?

Allergy symptoms vary from person to person and season to season. Sometimes they may be a minor pain, while other times they can interfere with how you function. Some of the most common allergy symptoms include:

Eye Allergy Symptoms

  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Dark circles under the eyes or on the eyelids
  • Abnormal irritation from contact lenses
  • Burning sensation in the eyes
  • Puffy eyes
  • Dry eyes
  • Eyelids sticking together

Nose Allergy Symptoms

Ear Allergy Symptoms

  • Popping
  • Crackling
  • That odd “underwater” feeling

Throat Allergy Symptoms

Body and Skin Allergy Symptoms

Symptoms can appear on your skin, but they can also affect how you feel. These can be harder to detect, so keep an eye out for:

  • Rash
  • Hives
  • Flu-like symptoms without having a fever or chills
  • Headaches
  • Exhaustion

Can You Treat Spring Allergies?

For some people, spring allergy symptoms are unwelcome and a bit of a pain, but for others, they cause misery and interfere with daily living. Luckily, you can treat your spring allergies.

Over-the-counter antihistamines can offer short-term relief to reduce symptoms enough to allow you to go about your life. Those with more severe allergies may require a prescription antihistamine.

For those looking for long-lasting allergy relief, consider immunotherapy, a long-term solution to seasonal allergy symptoms. This clinically-proven therapy desensitizes your immune system to stop it from overreacting to your allergens.
