Live Well with Allergies

Do you wake up day after day with a runny nose, itchy eyes, a strange headache, or shortness of breath?

You could very well be experiencing allergies!

There are so many different types of allergies such as:

  • Environmental

  • Skin
  • Drug
  • Dust

If you think you might be experiencing allergy symptoms, It’s a good idea to call your doctor or find a qualified allergist.

With no intervention by a qualified health care provider, your symptoms could last for quite awhile.

Why Call an Allergist?

An allergist is trained to find the source of your symptoms, treat them and help you feel better.

After earning a medical degree, the doctor must complete a three-year residency-training program in either internal medicine or pediatrics.

After that, an allergist completes two or three more years of study in the field of asthma, allergy and immunology.

You can find an allergist on the websites of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology or the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.

Common tests or procedures performed:

Food Challenges, Patch Testing, Allergy Skin Testing, Blood Tests, Spirometry (Lung Function Tests), Medication (Drug) Challenge, and Aspirin Desensitization.

An allergist will review the results and help you create an allergy action plan, so you’ll get some much needed relief!

In conclusion, finding help and treating symptoms will help end the suffering!
