The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these telltale signs of seasonal allergies:
- Persistent symptoms including red and watery eyes, sneezing and runny nose that last for weeks at a time, and seem to emerge at the same time each year.
- A tingling or itching feeling in the mouth or throat.
- A scaly red rash in the skin creases, ankles or wrists.
