"It is the season for sure," Dr. Damon Coyle, of Family Allergy & Asthma, said.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America says more Americans suffer from allergies than any other health problem, and each season brings new causes of itching and sneezing.

A person's sensitivity to allergies depends on the genetics passed from their parents and the amount of exposure to the allergens.

Allergens are foreign to the body, so when they are eaten, breathed, injected or touched, the immune system reacts with some of the many symptoms associated with allergies.
