Hay Fever's High Season

Blame springtime allergies on pollen. If symptoms kick into high gear early in the season, trees such as ash, elm, maple, birch, poplar, beech, walnut, sycamore, cypress, hickory, pecan, cottonwood and alder are your usual suspects. Allergies that strike later in the season are most often due to the green stuff under your feet. People who are allergic to one type of grass are usually susceptible to them all.
