Allergy symptoms refer to the symptoms that occur when the body’s immune system reacts to substances that are typically harmless, such as pollen, mold, animal dander, and certain foods.

Seasonal allergy symptoms are a type of allergy symptoms that occur during specific times of the year, usually when certain plants are in bloom. These symptoms are typically caused by exposure to airborne allergens like tree, grass, and weed pollen.
