Are allergies common in the fall?
In this regard, why are my allergies worse in the fall?
Cool autumn air harbors irritants that can be just as unpleasant as pollen. This worsens allergy symptoms because as mold particle counts climb higher, they become increasingly irritating to people with allergies. High mold counts also contribute to breathing problems among those with asthma, Portnoy said.
Likewise, do Falling Leaves cause allergies? A runny nose, itchy eyes and scratchy throat can arise as the days get shorter and the leaves begin to change. The fall can be especially difficult for people who are sensitive to mold and ragweed pollen. But these seasonal elements aren t the only triggers that can make symptoms worse this time of year.
