Some of the Most Common Allergies in Houston You May be Suffering From:

  • Pollen: This substance is probably the most common cause of seasonal allergies across the country, including in Houston. Pollen moves through the air and spreads easily in areas with little rain.
  • Cedar: A cedar allergy may have similar symptoms to pollen allergies – except cedar is more likely to also appear during winter months. Cedar is incredibly popular in Texas and can travel great distances – making us all susceptible to the sneezing and watery eyes that accompany “cedar fever.”
  • Box Elder: Often unique to Houston, box elder allergies are extreme and can cause difficulty breathing, asthma-like symptoms.
  • Other Trees: Pine, Juniper, Oak and Birch trees are common in Houston and can cause excessive allergies during the spring season. The strong symptoms associated with tree allergies may even be flu-like.
  • Ragweed: Very common across the country, ragweed allergies involve a lot of sneezing and watery eyes.
  • Arroyo Willow: Common during the early Spring, presenting as early as January in Houston.
