A List of Uncommon Seasonal Allergy Symptoms
We’re in the middle of spring allergy season and your body is letting you know about it. Your nose is running, you’re congested, and your eyes are itchy. It’s the same symptoms you’ve experienced in the past.
Did you know there are also a variety of uncommon seasonal allergy symptoms? Here are just a few that could affect you in the days, weeks, and even months to come.
Headaches: Headaches and nasal symptoms often go together hand in hand during allergy season. However, headaches can also be isolated when caused by allergies.
Itchy skin: Itchy skin, accompanied by a skin rash, is not a common allergy symptom but it could affect you.
Sore throat (especially in the morning): A stuffy nose may cause you to sleep with your mouth open, which increases the likelihood of waking up with a sore throat.
Behavioral changes: Allergies make it difficult to sleep. Allergies make it difficult to enjoy your day. Both of these things can get you down, thus resulting in behavioral changes until you find relief.
These may not be the most common seasonal allergy symptoms, but they have the potential to come to light. Stay in tune with your body and take immediate action should these symptoms move to the forefront.
