Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies, also known as allergic rhinitis or hay fever, affect more than 20 million adults and 6 million children throughout the United States. Seasonal allergies may be worse at certain times of the year depending on the allergen that is causing your symptoms. The common causes of seasonal allergies include: 

  • Ragweed (most common)
  • Pollen
  • Grasses
  • Trees
  •  Weeds

Symptoms of seasonal allergies may include: 

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Nasal and sinus congestion
  • headache
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Ear congestion
  • Coughing 
  • Worsening of asthma symptoms

The first step in treating seasonal allergies is to find out what is causing them. Columbia Allergy offers a variety of allergy testing including skin prick and intradermal testing to identify the allergens. Depending on the severity of your symptoms and your specific needs, you may be a candidate for subcutaneous (allergy shots), sublingual (SLIT) or ultrasound-guided intralymphatic immunotherapy (ILIT).
