(HealthDay News) -- Allergies can cause symptoms that go well beyond the tell-tale red eyes, runny nose, sneezing and case of the sniffles.

The American College of Asthma, Allergy & Immunology says additional symptoms of allergies may include:

  • Allergic shiners, characterized by dark circles under the eyes.
  • A tired, droopy look to the face caused by swollen adenoids.
  • A line that forms on the bridge of the nose, called a nasal crease, from frequently rubbing of an itchy nose.
  • Breathing through the mouth.
