Internal Medicine - Allergy
In brief: Not really
There is a genetic basis of allergic disease, but what you may be seeing is a seasonal variation due to the presence of specific pollen at certain times of the year. People who are allergic to ragweed may have symptoms from mid august to mid october, and at no other time.
People sensitive to animals will have symptoms with exposure and not at other time..
