What Are Typical Seasonal Allergy Symptoms?

Question: What are typical seasonal allergy symptoms?

Answer: Typical seasonal allergy symptoms include runny nose, nasal congestion, post nasal drip, itchy nose, itchy eyes, watering, tearing of the eyes, and in some cases in those that have asthma, you can get the typical asthma symptoms which include shortness of breath, wheezing, cough. Those are the primary symptoms. Now people can additionally experience other types of systemic complaints such as fatigue, they don't sleep well, and on occasion they may not be able to think clearly or they may have headaches, but these tend to be in the patients that have very severe allergies versus the primary symptoms that I mentioned.
