If you have a severe allergy or if you’re having a severe allergic reaction, you may have symptoms like swelling of the lips, swelling of another part of the face, difficulty breathing, or anaphylaxis. These symptoms can be very serious and even life-threatening, so if you have any of the above symptoms, it’s necessary to go to the ER (emergency room).
If you have simple allergies, you might have symptoms like a plugged nose, watery eyes, coughing, sneezing, hives, and related symptoms. All these symptoms are typically minor and just a nuisance, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t address them! You can have your symptoms treated at a clinic like Allergy & Asthma Center, and we may even be able to treat your allergy itself.
With certain allergies like food allergies, a patient can just avoid the substances they react to. If you have a food allergy, avoidance may be all that’s necessary. You might also have to avoid related foods you might react to. For example, if you have a tomato allergy, you may need to avoid tomatoes and also potatoes. Some food allergies can be quite serious, especially if there’s a risk of anaphylaxis, so it may be really important for you to avoid certain foods.
Some allergies can actually be treated. If a patient has only a mild allergy, like a simple seasonal allergy, the patient may be able to treat the allergy with over-the-counter or prescription medicine. This medicine could be an oral medicine or a nasal allergy spray. If a patient has a more serious allergy and is at risk of serious symptoms, the patient may need emergency epinephrine to treat the allergy. In fact, the patient may need to carry around an emergency epinephrine device like an EpiPen to treat their allergy in any emergency situation.
There are other treatments for allergies, including a treatment that may actually cure an allergy!
Sometimes a patient will benefit a lot from long-term immune-strengthening treatment for their allergies, which can actually help the patient develop a tolerance or even immunity to an allergen. This is called immunotherapy, and typically, immunotherapy is done with allergy shots.
If you need allergy shots, our clinic may be able to help you get them. Contact us if you’re interested in treating your allergies.
