  • Leaves – Raking leaves and stirring up allergens go hand in hand. The act of moving the pollen spores in the leaves can certainly give any allergy-sufferer an attack to the respiratory system. Usually, it is followed by sneezing and wheezing for days after the initial raking of the leaves.
  • Back to School – Back to school, or a regular work schedule, can lead to an excess of germs. It can also open you up to a world of mold spores that are in the school all summer and then are opened back up in the fall. School allergies can lead to flare ups in asthma as well as food allergies, pet allergies and dust allergies.
  • Indian Summer Blues – During the warm final months of summer there is the time where it becomes increasingly humid. This time is perfect for the mold spores to grow. This can lead to many allergic reactions for seasonal sufferers.
