In brief: Itching & sneezing

Are symptoms specific for allergic rhinitis.
When absent & you have other symptoms of rhinitis - congestion, runny nose, burning, post nasal drip, coughing - think a cold, sinus infection or non allergic rhinitis. Itchy eyes & top of your mouth are other specific symptoms of allergic rhinitis. It's called hay fever because it occurs in late summer when farmers mow the tall grass to make hay.

In brief: Achoo!

Spring's a happy time for some folks, a challenging time for others.
When mother nature sends her pollinated greetings, we can sneeze like crazy, get stuffy drippy noses, stuffy ears/ear pain. Our eyes can get watery & itchy. Good news: try nasal saline rinses [neilmed/spray/neti pot], over the counter loratadine/cetirizine, prescription steroid nasal sprays. Lots of ways to get relief. Good luck!
