- Are your complaints getting worse when you go outside?
- Do you feel exceptionally tired when your symptoms occur?

Of course, to find out which pollen you are allergic to, you have to go to the doctor. It would be good to visit an allergist and have a so-called prick test done. But many family doctors also carry out this test. However, in order to clarify possible cross-reactions, the visit to specialists would be good. Anyone who would like to inform themselves beforehand can take a look at the allergy calendar.
Here is the allergy calendar . Please note that these can only be approximate values.
