What is a seasonal allergy?

A seasonal allergy is an allergic reaction to a trigger that is typically only present for part of a year, such as spring or fall. This type of allergy refers to a pollen allergy, such as trees, weeds and grasses. Perennial allergies, on the other hand, are usually present year-round and include allergens such as pet dander and house dust mites. Molds can be a seasonal or perennial allergy trigger.
