How do allergies work? South Florida ENT Associates in Weston 

An allergen's re-entry into the body triggers an immediate response from the immune system, resulting in tissue destruction and capillary dilation. Furthermore, various inflammatory substances are produced, including histamine, responsible for common allergy symptoms like itchy eyes, nasal congestion, and headaches. Although not as frequent, balance disturbances or skin irritations such as eczema can also result from this process; even more severe conditions like asthma sometimes occur.

What treatments are available for allergies?

  • Allergy shots can provide lasting relief to those suffering from environmental allergies. By receiving one to two weekly injections, your body will begin building up a tolerance as the dosage increases. Eventually, you'll only need maintenance and be free of any discomfort caused by allergens. With this treatment method, many find long-term respite from pesky allergens.
  • Allergy drops: Allergy drops are an incredible form of immunotherapy that uses your allergen to reduce sensitivity. The formula is created specifically for the allergens that cause a reaction, and it can be taken by putting several drops beneath your tongue. With consistent use over time, these drops will assist in providing relief from allergies.

Are seasonal allergies serious?

Allergies can be a significant source of discomfort and distress, leading to countless sick days, poorer productivity at work or school, and an overall lack of quality of life. With the tremendous costs of anti-allergy medications and lost working hours due to the condition, allergies should not be taken lightly. 

Some allergy sufferers have symptoms only during specific seasons while others face year-round struggles; however, successful management approaches such as multiple simultaneously used strategies provide many relief opportunities.
