Check the seasons

If you are allergic to tree pollens, grasses, and weeds, symptoms can start as early as February, when trees start blooming. Grasses can make you miserable through late summer, and weeds will keep you wheezing through fall. Knowing which one you're allergic to (white-oak pollen is the most common) can help you be prepared to combat symptoms.
