In brief: If too many symptoms
Hay fever (allergies) is usually due to pollens that are in the air. Some people are allergic to molds and other substances.
One can wear a mask when working outdoors or when hiking. Avoid playing outdoors when the pollen or smog levels are high. Medicines such as Claritin otc, zyrtec otc, or prescription eye drops and nasal steroid sprays are helpful. Allergy shots are another option.
