Allergic Rhinitis: Seasonal allergic rhinitis (more commonly known as hay fever) is mainly an allergy caused by outdoor allergens, such as tree, grass and weed pollens, as well as some mold spores. If you sneeze and have a runny or stuffy nose during the spring, summer or fall allergy seasons, you may have hay fever. Hay fever is the most common type of allergy problem, and symptoms include sneezing, itching, runny or stuffy nose, and red, watery eyes.
