When are allergies serious enough to seek medical help?
Allergies are extremely common and affect millions of Americans. Symptoms range from a stuffy nose and occasional sneeze to severe allergic reactions. Allergies are also a common trigger for asthma attacks. Patients with asthma experience chest tightness, shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. Common substances that cause allergic symptoms include pollen (grass, tree and weeds), mold spores, dust mites, feathers and animal dander. If allergies are causing you discomfort or impairing your ability to work, play or enjoy life, come visit us to see how we can help.
Why doesn't everyone have allergies?
Allergies are caused by the immune system reacting to substances (or allergens) that would typically not trigger a reaction. Allergies result from environmental factors and genetic predisposition. If one parent is allergic, the risk of allergies in a child is 30 to 40 percent. If both parents are allergic, there is a 50 to 70 percent chance of a child developing allergies. The board certified allergist's goal is to help patients prevent symptoms by managing their allergies and asthma so they can lead healthy, normal lives. The strong emphasis placed on individualized patient care has been part of the clinic's philosophy of practice for over 75 years.
