Seasonal allergies taking hold

That stuffy nose you've had for weeks might not be just a cold — it could be seasonal allergies acting up.

That stuffy nose you've had for weeks might not be just a cold — it could be seasonal allergies acting up. More than nine million Canadians suffer from seasonal allergies, including those caused by ragweed in the fall months.

Exposure to allergens when the body’s defenses are weakened (such as after a viral infection like a cold or the flu or during puberty) may contribute to the development of allergies. People with year-round allergies are more likely to have developed them as adults.
