Ahh-choo! Coughing, runny noses and itchy, watery eyes are the worst part of pollen season. Pollen is seasonal and consists of tiny grains that are necessary for plant and tree reproduction. These small grains cause allergic reactions for many individuals.

If you are experiencing an allergic reaction due to seasonal pollen, the best remedy is to stay inside and avoid contact. However, if avoidance is not possible, medication such as an antihistamine can alleviate and control these symptoms.
