While hay fever and allergies caused by trees are usually associated with springtime, seasonal allergies can also spike during the early fall months. Cool autumn air harbors irritants that can be just as unpleasant as pollen.
Allergens from trees and grasses float through the air in spring, summer and fall, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). “The most common fall allergy is ragweed, which pollinates from August 15 to early October through most of the United States” said Dr. Jay M. Portnoy, chief of allergy, asthma and immunology at Children’s Mercy Hospitals & Clinics in Kansas City, Mich. Mold spores are also released in autumn, and become more common in the air as decaying leaves and other vegetation fall to the ground. High mold counts also contribute to breathing problems among those with asthma.
