Allergies are caused by your body’s immune system misinterpreting normal environmental factors as threats—such as dander, pollen, dust, mold, chemicals, and certain foods.

For those Americans who experience allergies every year—an estimated 1 in 5 people—there is always the hope that they can find sustainable relief from the sneezing, coughing, runny noses, and watery, itchy eyes, and many other symptoms allergies can cause.

Did you know? 60 million people in the U.S. suffer from allergies. That’s enough people to classify as an allergy epidemic!

What are my treatment options?

There are a number of treatment options available that may offer some relief from allergy symptoms. These options include avoidance, prescription and over-the-counter medications, and allergy immunotherapy (allergy shots or sublingual drops).

If you feel that someone you love or your allergy medication and avoidance measures do not help as much as you would like, you should consult one of our ENT Allergist specialist regarding evaluation and individualized treatment options available to you.

Who could benefit?

Allergy shots or sublingual drops are used for people with respiratory allergies caused by pollens, animal dander, molds and dust mites. Speak with your physician about your allergies and the individualized treatment options available to you. If you think you may be a candidate for immunotherapy, ask your doctor about it today.

You may learn to live with your allergies- but you don’t have to! See an ENT Allergist to learn more about your allergies and to find out if immunotherapy is right for you.
