The fall and spring can be miserable times for seasonal allergy sufferers. Nearly 50 million Americans have some type of seasonal nasal allergy, according to American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Due to weather pattern changes, their grief may only be growing, according to CBS News. This spring, for instance, marked some of the highest pollen counts in recent history, and in the Northeast come referred to the early summer as a "pollen tsunami." Fall is prime time for weed pollen, including ragweed, nettle, mugwort, fat hen and sorrel.
