Those with allergies might want to avoid going outdoors on high pollen-count days.
You can check the pollen count daily on the local weather and news reports, and on Web sites such as American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology. Peak time is early morning from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Symptoms that occur repeatedly after eating a particular food that may include hives, swelling, gagging, coughing or wheezing, vomiting or significant abdominal pain may point to food allergies
Repeated or chronic cold-like symptoms that last more than a week or two, or develop at about the same time every year, including a runny nose, nasal stuffiness, sneezing, throat clearing, and itchy, watery eyes may be the signs of allergies
