Allergies

Approximately 50 million people in the US – nearly one in five – have allergies. This includes millions of children. Allergy symptoms can be more than bothersome or irritating. They can interfere with your day-to-day activities and sleep. Allergies are the most common reasons for loss of productivity, missed work or school, and overall poor quality of life. Allergies can first occur at any stage in life, from infancy to late adult.  Family Allergy & Asthma offers a variety of treatment options for our patients with allergies. We recommend you schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified allergists to find out what you’re allergic to and to review which treatment makes the most sense for you.

Common Allergy Symptoms

  • Sinus Congestion
  • Runny Nose
  • Post Nasal Drip
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Itchy or Watery Eyes

Symptoms that may not be recognized as allergy-related include:

  • Headaches
  • Sore Throat
  • Loss of Taste or Smell
  • Low Productivity/Poor Concentration
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Snoring

Allergies are triggered by a variety of things, including pollen, dust, mold, and/or food.

An allergy skin test is the best, most accurate way to determine the extent of your allergies, as well as a treatment plan. Our doctors also referred to as allergists, will create with you a customized treatment plan, that can include medications, environmental control, and/or immunotherapy, also known as allergy shots, tablets, or drops.

Don’t suffer from untreated allergies. Schedule an appointment today with one of our board-certified allergists, and move towards a clearer tomorrow.
