We're right in that time between summer allergies and fall allergies.

So if you feel like you've been hit extra hard, you could be getting a dose of both. The most common triggers in the summer are grasses and then during the fall, weeds are a problem.

Here's what The Youth Clinic identifies as the most common symptoms. Watery, itchy eyes and a clear, runny nose, sneezing and an itchy throat could be affecting you.

Your entire family could be experiencing symptoms like this. But the treatment plan is different, depending on your age and what other medications you take.

The best plan of action is to talk to your doctor, especially because those fall allergies are just getting started.
