Grass pollen is known to cause a variety of different allergic reactions. Grass pollen is present in the air in late spring and early summer months, which can cause allergic rhinitis, alllergic conjunctivitis and asthma.

Grass allergy can also be associated with the fruit pollen syndrome resulting in food allergies to tomatoes, potatoes and peaches.
