Question: Why do I always get miserable allergy symptoms around Labor Day?  John.  Indianapolis, IN

Answer: John,  you most likely have ragweed, weed or mold allergies which is predominant in your area during the late summer.  Ragweed pollen counts, in particular, abruptly increase  and causes a lot of outdoor allergy symptoms starting in mid to late August and peak around Labor Day in the Midwestern USA.   Please see our article on ragweed allergies.
