What Are Allergies?

An allergy is a body’s defense reaction to any substance that your body is treating as a foreign invader. The most common include dust mites, animal dander, and pollen.

How Do You Treat Allergies?

If you have a known allergy, it is always best to avoid it as much as is reasonably possible. 

For mild symptoms, there are several over-the-counter medications that serve as antihistamines and relieve the sneezing, itching, overactive nasal cavities, and red and watery eyes. 

For severe symptoms, it may be necessary to use a shot of epinephrine and/or seek emergency treatment.

In some cases, there are shots that have been known to help reduce allergic reactions to certain allergens. 

What is an Allergy Specialist?

An allergy specialist is a doctor whose primary focus is the diagnosis and treatment of allergies and other immune system issues. 

This includes familiarity with the exact reactions that our bodies have to specific stimuli, understanding the biological processes, and knowing how to best combat these issues with one of the many options available to us today.

An allergy specialist can assess your unique situations, which include not only your allergy, but your day-to-day lifestyle. From here, the allergist can best assess how your lifestyle can be adjusted to minimize your exposure to the allergy, as well as plan and prepare prescription and non-prescription treatment options, if necessary. 

Finally, the allergist will know if there are more permanent options that you can access, such as allergy shots, so that you may not need to worry about your exposure to the source quite as much. If there is a way to improve your health or well being, an allergy specialist will know.
