Seasonal allergies: know the triggers, avoid them as much as you can, take second generation antihistamines: cetirizine or loratadine or fexofenadine, unless contraindicated, take them on regular basis not only as needed, saline nasal washes every day no matter what. If all fails you need to see an Allergist/Immunologist for evaluation, good luck
