For the last 6 or 7 years during the month of September I start sneezing I get a runny nose with  itchy eyes and itchy throat. Why?
 
for some reason it usually start around the last 2 days in August and ends around the first 2 days in October.  Only this month not a cold or flu or anything the rest of the year. 
 
Does anyone else have this or have any idea what may cause this.

Hi Shawn2040! Could very well be allergies, by how you described it. Talk it over with your primary care physician(PCP) and see if he/she might refer you to an allergist, because only by allergy testing will you know for sure. The skin pricks on the lower arms are not so bad, the upper arm pricks do hurt. I don't think anyone tests on the back anymore. Good luck! Hope you feel better really soon scool You'll get lots of good advise on this website. read some of the post they might help you out. Best wishes

Thanks for the advice I'll give it a shot.  In the mean time has anyone else even heard or experience this. Alergies only 1 month out of the year.  I know many with allergies but it's through out the year or for longer periods.  Not that I am complaining but it's just strange. 
 
Thanks
