In brief: Depends

Avoidance is first line of treatment.
In spring and summer, pollen and mold spores are increased. Pollen is highest in am and on windy days. Stay indoors. Use ac. In car use recirculated ac/ windows up.If allergy is severe, meds are helpful. You may need to take meds daily until the first frost. Some people wiyh really bad allergy also do well with allergy shots. These desensitize you.
