4 Common Allergy Treatments
Allergy season is upon us! At Downriver ENT, this is one of our busiest seasons, because allergies are precisely where we specialize. In today’s blog post, we’re going to cover some of the most common allergy treatments we recommend for dealing with the seasonal sniffles or chronic allergies.
Allergy medications can help relieve the symptoms of allergies, such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and congestion. These medications may be taken orally or through nasal sprays, eye drops, or skin creams. It is important to speak to your doctor about the best medications for your particular allergies.
Immunotherapy, also known as allergy shots, works by gradually introducing small amounts of the allergen into the body to help build up tolerance. This treatment may be recommended if other treatments are not successful.
Nasal irrigation is a safe and effective way to reduce inflammation and flush out irritants in the nose. This can be done with a special device, a neti pot, or a saline solution to help relive allergies.
One of the most effective ways to manage allergies is to avoid the allergens that trigger them. This may require limiting exposure to pets, mold, pollen, and dust mites. It may also be helpful to use air filters to reduce allergens in your home.
