Spring has sprung! While almost everyone is happy to say goodbye to the winter doldrums and its accompanying cold weather, those with allergies know that the transition to springtime can be a double-edged sword. Along with warmer weather and longer days, allergy sufferers can say hello to a myriad of symptoms including sniffling, sneezing, and sinus congestion. There is no need to suffer through your spring allergies alone. The Allergy & Asthma Center’s experienced team of board-certified allergists has the knowledge and expertise necessary to help relieve your worst allergy symptoms.
Pollen is the leading trigger for most seasonal allergy sufferers. While many people may assume pollen refers only to flowers, trees, grass, and even weeds can release pollen that may irritate your allergies. At the Allergy & Asthma Center, our expert allergists can help determine the specific types of pollen that may be triggering your worst symptoms. When you are allergic to something, it means your body’s immune system mistakenly believes it poses a danger, and so your body releases antibodies to attack it. The release of histamines into the blood is what sets off the allergic reactions you experience, including your runny nose and itchy, watery eyes.
At our allergy & asthma clinic, our professional team of allergy specialists are dedicated to helping relieve your spring allergy symptoms, so you can enjoy everything the great outdoors has to offer all year. At the Allergy & Asthma Center, we offer a full range of services to help you take control of your seasonal allergies. Whether you are coming to us for an initial consultation and diagnosis, or you are returning to receive allergy shots, we want you to feel comfortable and welcome. Our medical staff is committed to providing the highest quality allergy treatment in a calm and relaxed environment.
There are several different methods for treating allergies. The most common is by taking an oral medication such as an anti-histamine to relieve your symptoms. Many people also use steroid nasal sprays to help relieve inflammation in the nasal cavity and sinuses. Eye drops can be utilized to help with red, itchy eyes. Doctor Jon Stahlman MD and his highly-trained team of allergy specialists can help guide you to the appropriate treatments for your specific allergy issues, whether that includes over the counter medications or prescription ones.
The Allergy & Asthma Center is also proud to offer immunotherapy treatment for those patients who may prefer a more long-term and permanent solution. Allergy shots help desensitize your immune response by introducing your body to slowly increasing amounts of allergens to build up a tolerance. Immunotherapy is a long-term solution, typically taking 3-5 years to complete, but it can have excellent long-term benefits for those who have the patience to stick it out. If you are interested in potentially pursuing immunotherapy to treat your symptoms, our board-certified allergists can help you determine if it is right for you.
