Just because you make it through this spring without an allergy outbreak, doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. Contrary to popular belief, seasonal allergies don’t just strike in the spring and fall. Even if the temperature is 25-degrees plus, your runny nose could be due to allergies. Some common allergy triggers during summer months include grass pollens and mold spores.
In fact, a study by the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology found that adult-onset allergies can often occur in the summer and often are mistaken for a cold. If symptoms are persistent, you should see a board-certified allergist for proper testing, diagnosis and treatment.
