About Allergy Treatments at South Florida ENT Associates in Hollywood, FL

Upon re-exposure to an allergen, the immune system quickly identifies it and triggers various responses. These can include tissue damage, blood vessel expansion, and the production of inflammatory elements like histamine. 

Histamine is responsible for common allergy symptoms such as sore eyes that itch and water, facial pressure due to nasal or sinus blockage, headaches, sneezing fits accompanied by scratchy throats plus hives with difficulty in breathing, among other signs including unsteadiness when standing up, skin inflammation like eczema; lung irritation leading to asthma attacks.
