My son is 9 months old. I think he has some seasional allergies. He is sneezing a lot, red watery eyes, and runny nose and all discharge is clear?

In brief: Don't assume allergy

If i blow pepper in your face, you sneeze & drain the same as those with allergy.
I find babies have more congestion with scented cleaning products, perfume, smoke & other irritants than they do with animal dander or pollens. The tiny nasal passages that become very noisy with a little mucous or swelling gives many the wrong idea. Thease are not little copies of adult problems, their issues differ.

I agree with Dr. Ferguson. A 9 month old child is too young for seasonal allergies (not enough exposure), but it is possible to have developed indoor allergies at this age related to dust mite or animal dander.
