With the spring season in full swing, allergy symptoms can cause discomfort for many people. James Tarbox, M.D., an allergist at Texas Tech Physicians, spoke about adult-onset allergies.

“We see a lot of allergies in kids,” Tarbox said. “But some percent of the population don’t develop allergies until their 20s, 30s or even older.” 

According to The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, seasonal allergic rhinitis (e.g., the common cold, hay fever) affects approximately 25% of the adult population in the United States.
