RAGWEED ALLERGIES:
SYMPTOMS AND TREATMENT

A ragweed allergy is caused by an allergic reaction to the pollen of the ragweed plant, a flowering weed that is most prevalent in the east and Midwest regions of the United States.1 Ragweed allergies are most common during late summer through the fall, with mid-September being the peak time for ragweed allergy symptoms.1

RAGWEED ALLERGY SYMPTOMS

Ragweed allergy symptoms, similar to any pollen allergy symptom, include nasal allergy symptoms like nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, itchy nose, itchy eyes, and watery eyes.1

RAGWEED ALLERGY TREATMENT

Treating ragweed allergies isn't always easy, and we can be exposed to ragweed pollen even when we try to avoid the outdoors. Learn how to use FLONASE® Allergy Relief nasal spray to help you treat your ragweed allergy symptoms.
