Pollen allergy: A common spring allergy that causes sensitive individuals to feel itchy or watery eyes, runny nose and congestion, an itch in the mouth or lip swelling. This sensitivity is a result of the body's reaction to certain airborne pollen from the tiny particles released from grasses, weeds and trees that hitch a ride on the currents of air.
