    It is common to associate seasonal allergies with Spring.  As the temperatures begin to warm, new plants bloom, and the world seems green again. That new growth often gets the blame for itchy eyes and “hay fever.”  Other plants, however, have different growing seasons, and some that trigger allergies which flourish during alternate seasons.  Moreover, many common allergens aren’t plant-based at all.

    Spring is just around the corner, and that likely means your family is about to be spending a lot of time outside on the soccer and baseball fields, at the park, and on the beach.  Spring brings beautiful weather, and with it, a variety of allergens.  In the south, tree pollen season is roughly February through May, with pollens from oak, cedar, and pecan trees being the worst allergy triggers.
