Year-Round and Seasonal Allergies - Symptoms
Symptoms of allergic rhinitis (allergies) include:
- nasal congestion
- sore throat
- runny nose
Allergic rhinitis is sometimes associated with itchy, watery eyes (allergic conjunctivitis) and wheezing and coughing (asthma). These symptoms - especially nasal congestion - can lead to impaired sleep, which can result in significant daytime sleepiness and fatigue.
