Your nose, eyes, respiratory system and skin can all be involved when spring allergies hit

If you suffer from spring allergies, you already know that you tend to feel miserable once pollen season descends. But did you know that allergies can affect many different systems within your body – and that they’re all interconnected?

“Spring allergens such as pollen, mold spores and other airborne particles not only trigger nasal allergies, but also can have a profound effect on a variety of allergic conditions including asthma and eczema,” says allergist Gailen Marshall, MD, PhD, president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI). “Understanding how all the allergic responses are interconnected is crucial for effectively managing and improving the overall quality of life for people who are affected.”
