WEDNESDAY, June 15, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Up to 40 percent of children in the United States have nasal allergies[1], the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says.

These kids likely have persistent sneezing[2], along with a stuffy or runny nose[3]. These symptoms -- known as allergic rhinitis[4] -- are more likely to develop if one or both parents have allergies[5], the agency noted.

Nasal allergies[6] can be caused by outdoor allergens such as plant pollens (seasonal allergies) or indoor allergens[7] such as mold[8], dust mites and pet dander.

If your child has seasonal allergies, pay attention to pollen
