Runny nose, irritating eyes, and itchy throat. How can you tell if it's just allergies or not?

In brief: Examination

These symptoms are very suggestive of seasonal allergy but there are ways to confirm. Your eye doctor will look for allergic reactions on the surface of your eye and on the inside of your eye lid to confirm that allergies are the cause.
If taking antihistamines reduces the symptoms, we will know for sure.
