Allergies are a common condition affecting one out of every five people. They are caused by an abnormal immune system response to certain triggers that are otherwise harmless. These triggers, called allergens, may cause symptoms such as a runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, headaches, stomach pain and diarrhea. Although there is no cure for allergic reactions, there are many different treatment options to help control their symptoms.
Our doctors are specially trained to identify the specific allergens that trigger reactions in each person, and will help you develop the best defense against your individual allergies. A customized prevention and treatment plan helps relieve symptoms and allows patients to enjoy a better quality of life. While you may not be able to completely prevent allergies from affecting you, you can keep their troublesome symptoms to a minimum.
You can work to prevent symptoms from occurring by identifying the triggers that cause your symptoms, and then trying to avoid them as much as possible. When symptoms do arise, they can be treated with medications, antihistamines, nasal sprays or decongestants. There is no set treatment that works more effectively than others, so it is important to find out which treatment works best for you.
