Allergies

Allergies are fairly common, affecting approximately 1 out of every five Americans. Allergies are caused by an abnormal response of the body’s immune system to a usually harmless substance found in the environment (Allergen) such as plant pollens, molds, dust mites, and animal hair. The Physicians at ENT Surgical Associates have additional advanced training in allergy therapy. Offering both allergy shots and oral allergy drops (SLIT) therapy.

Allergy symptoms can vary with the season and type of allergen involved, and may include sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, and itchy eyes and nose. Year-round prolonged exposure usually produces nasal congestion (chronic stuffy nose). Allergies can cause many ear, nose, and throat conditions, including:

  • Ear infections
  • Sore throats
  • Sinus infections

For some allergy sufferers, symptoms may be seasonal, but for others they produce year-round discomfort. Symptom control is most successful when multiple approaches are used simultaneously to manage the allergy. They may include minimizing exposure to allergens, medications, and in some cases subcutaneous immunotherapy (allergy shots) or sublingual immunotherapy (allergy drops) may be recommended. Immunotherapy is a method of treating allergies by desensitizing individuals to allergens over time, in many cases with the goal that they be cured of their allergies.

The physicians of E.N.T Surgical Associates have received additional, specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of allergic conditions. Their expertise can help determine the substances causing your discomfort and develop a management plan that will help make life more enjoyable.
