Seasonal vs. Perennial Allergies

Seasonal vs. Perennial Allergies

Allergies are commonly divided into two categories: seasonal and perennial.

Seasonal allergies are usually caused be sensitivities to pollen that is released during certain seasons, including pollen from trees, grasses and weeds. If you have seasonal allergies, you may notice that your allergies are worse in the spring and fall, although it’s possible to be exposed to pollen almost year round in Houston.

Perennial allergies are caused by exposure to substances other than pollens that occur throughout the year. These include allergies to mold, pets, feathers, other animals, insects and dust mites. If you have perennial allergies, you may experience symptoms daily or when specifically exposed to these allergens.

It is common to have both seasonal and perennial allergies.
