As the weather warms and flowers bloom, many individuals find themselves battling the uncomfortable symptoms of springtime allergies. Pollen, grass and other airborne allergens can trigger allergic reactions in susceptible individuals, leading to symptoms such as sneezing, congestion, itchy eyes and more. At Rapid Immediate Care, we understand the impact that seasonal allergies can have on your quality of life, and we offer comprehensive allergy care to help you find relief and enjoy the beauty of spring without discomfort.

Common Springtime and Summer Allergies

While allergies can impact individuals all year round, springtime and summer tend to bring on certain seasonal allergies. These include:

1. Pollen Allergy (Hay Fever)

Pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds is a common trigger for seasonal allergies, particularly in the spring and early summer months. Tree pollen tends to be prevalent in the spring, while grass and weed pollen may cause symptoms later in the season.

2. Mold Allergy

Mold spores thrive in warm, damp environments, making them prevalent during the spring and summer months. Outdoor molds can be found in soil, vegetation and decaying organic matter, while indoor molds may proliferate in areas with high humidity levels, such as bathrooms and basements.

3. Dust Mite Allergy

Dust mites are microscopic insects that thrive in indoor environments, particularly in bedding, upholstered furniture, and carpeting. While dust mites can trigger allergic reactions year-round, symptoms may worsen during the warmer months when humidity and temperature levels rise.

4. Pet Allergy

Pet dander, saliva and urine can trigger allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Spending time outdoors during the spring and summer months may expose individuals to pet allergens carried on clothing or transferred through the air.

Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies

Common symptoms of seasonal allergies may include:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Nasal congestion
  • Postnasal drip
  • Coughing
  • Sore throat
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches

Individuals with allergies often have a combination of symptoms that can occur daily or intermittently with exposure.

Treatment Options for Seasonal Allergies

Antihistamines can help alleviate allergy symptoms by blocking the effects of histamine, a chemical released by the immune system in response to allergen exposure. Over-the-counter antihistamines such as loratadine (Claritin), cetirizine (Zyrtec), and fexofenadine (Allegra) are commonly used to relieve sneezing, itching and nasal congestion. However, many people need more personalized allergy treatment to provide relief. At Rapid Immediate Care, we can provide accurate diagnoses for allergies and recommend the best treatment plans to address symptoms. This may include providing allergy testing, allergy shots and prescription medication that can relieve and prevent symptoms.
