Runny nose, congestion, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes? Allergic problems affect people of all ages
and can be seasonal or year round: there is no reason to suffer. Some people report waiting for many
years before seeking treatment with an Allergy Specialist.
Cough, wheeze, trouble breathing? Asthma is often underdetected and many people do not know they have asthma. Reactive airways (asthma) can be triggered by different factors among which tree pollen (especially Oak, Cedar, Cypress, Mulberry, Pine) grass pollen (Bahia, Johnson, Bermuda), ragweed and other weed pollen, mold, dust mites, cockroach, pet hair and dander. Less often, certain foods can trigger severe asthmatic attacks.
Itchy rashes, stomach problems? Allergic reactions can often trigger esophageal, gastric or intestinal problems as well as skin problems such as hives or eczema.
Trips to the E.R. for acute allergic reactions? Allergic reactions from a variety of triggers can be severe, rarely culminating in anaphylactic shock: it is important to know what trigges them and to have an emergency plan.
