At different times of year, pollen from trees, grasses and weeds can cause seasonal allergies. It’s difficult to avoid these common triggers but these allergies can be treated and brought under control. Common symptoms include nasal congestion, sneezing, runny, itchy nose, postnasal drainage, sinus pressure/headache, itchy, clogged ears, dry cough and itchy, watery eyes. People with perennial allergies may experience similar symptoms all year long because they are caused by indoor allergens such as molds, pets and dust mites. Dr. Viksman and medical staff will educate you on how to avoid exposure to allergens by implementing measures of environmental control. This helps to diminish allergy symptoms, though many people still require allergy medication to better control their symptoms. Another extensively studied and well-known treatment option is Immunotherapy – allergy injections (allergy shots) with airborne allergens, which effectively provides a long-term improvement and, in most cases, eliminate needs to use allergy drugs.
