Nasal and Eye Allergies
Nasal allergy symptoms include nasal congestion, postnasal drainage, sneezing, nasal itching, runny nose, and watery/itchy eyes. These can be caused by “aero-allergens” such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, and mold. Allergy testing can identify what you are allergic to in order to avoid the allergen and treat it properly with medications and/or immunotherapy.
Skin allergies can present in the form of eczema, urticaria, also known as hives, or contact dermatitis. Our allergists will carefully evaluate patients to find out what is triggering these symptoms and how to treat them.
Symptoms of an insect/venom allergy can include swelling, sensation of throat closure, wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, cough, hives, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and flushed sensation. These symptoms require prompt treatment as they can be life-threatening. Proper management includes identifying the trigger, avoiding it, having an emergency action plan in case of accidental exposure, and treating the condition with venom immunotherapy.
