Pollen allergies are caused by airborne pollens, which are in the form of a very fine powder released by trees, grass, and weeds as they pollinate and fertilize other plants of the same kind. Depending on where you live, your sensitivity may vary dramatically.

Pollen causes inflammation and irritation in the nasal passage and symptoms include itchy watery eyes, runny nose, itchy throat, hives, fatigue, and irritability. Over 67 million Americans suffer from these negative effects, so you are not alone.
