It’s the Fall – My Runny Nose Can’t Be Caused by Allergies, Right?

 In Allergy

Colorado falls are marked by vibrant colors, shimmering Aspens, and sunny days. Behind Coloradoans are the hot summer days and the unpredictable thunderstorms. And gone are those pesky allergies—right?

In fact, many people suffer from fall allergies, too. These allergies are often caused by the late August weather changes that trigger ragweed to pollenate. Nearly 75% of people who suffer from allergies in the spring are also sensitive to ragweed or other common Colorado weeds. Mold, too, can find its way into homes on the back of fall wind.

Fall allergy symptoms are similar to others caused by airborne allergens, but many people confuse these symptoms for a cold or virus. Here’s what to look out for if you think you might have symptoms of fall allergies.

Symptoms of Fall Allergies

The symptoms of fall allergies will not sound uncommon to those who suffer from allergies at other times of the year. Here are the main fall allergy symptoms:

  • Runny or itchy nose
  • Watery or itchy eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Dark circles under the eyes

Any other symptom that you commonly experience in during the spring allergy season could also be triggered by ragweed or another fall allergy culprit.
