Doctor:Let me brief you.
Doctor:Yes, seasonal allergic symptoms does happen in many individuals.

Doctor:this helps in developing body's ability to go through symptoms much easier.
User:in general allergy comes in any one of the point which you mentioned right

User:in my case, if i take bath and come out sneezing will start around 4 to 6 time continously
Doctor:You could develop the symptoms just due to temperature drop.
