In today's health matters, while millions of Americans suffer from seasonal allergies, each person experiences them differently.
Symptoms may include itchy eyes, a stuffy nose, sore throat, cough and fatigue.

Doctors say allergies in the autumn are attributable to one main culprit. They see ragweed blooming and that's really when they see real problems with fall allergies.

But just because you're an adult without allergies, doesn't mean you are in the clear. If you've never had allergies before it's still possible that you could develop them. It's more common among people who have a family history of allergies.

While nasal sprays and over-the-counter products may be effective for some, others may need to go on allergy shots or a combination of therapies.
