Fall is finally here – both on the calendar and in the temperatures. While fall brings football, tailgating, bonfires, and an enjoyable reprieve from the oppressive summer heat, it can also bring miserable symptoms to those with allergies.

Hay Fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, refers to cold-like symptoms that appear as a result of airborne allergies. Sneezing, congestion, and watery eyes are all allergic reactions to airborne particles such as pollen or other particles from plants. However, skin irritation or rash is another, less familiar, symptom of hay fever.

Most people think of getting an allergic rash from actually brushing up against something that irritates their skin. However, what people forget is that your skin comes into direct contact with air and airborne particles at all times when it is not covered. Fall typically brings blustery days. These windy days stir up particles from plants such as golden rod and other fall blooming plants. When these particles come into contact with your skin, they can easily cause an allergic reaction.

One of the main symptoms of hay fever is generalized itchiness. This symptom is not well known, despite it being extremely common. Because itchiness tends to cause you to scratch your skin, scratching can easily lead to skin irritation. Any type of skin irritation can cause an infection to occur simply because it leaves the inner layers of skin exposed. Combine this vulnerable skin with other allergy symptoms, and you can have a recipe for a miserable fall season.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
