What are you allergic to if you have seasonal hay fever?

ANSWER

Typically, if you get hay fever in the spring, you're probably allergic to tree pollens. Grass and weed pollens may be causing your allergic reaction during the summer. In autumn, weeds may bother you, Fungus spores cause problems primarily from late March through November but can be present year round.
