Things Your Immunologist Wishes You Knew About Allergies

cropped-allergy-asthma-clinic-anthem-az-adult-pediatric-allergy-associates-pc-copy1.pngIt goes without saying enduring allergy symptoms is a miserable experience. Add to that allergy ignorance, and you’re looking at long-term suffering. Fortunately, that suffering can be alleviated. Unfortunately, your Glendale Asthma & Allergy Clinic may assume you have the necessary information to address the situation when, in fact, you’re seriously in the dark.

Shed some light on stubborn allergy symptoms with these potentially missing links:

If the immunologist at your local allergy and asthma clinic could get in your head, you might discover…

  • You may be taking the wrong medication
    Avoiding the doctor with over-the-counter (OTC) oral antihistamines isn’t helping. Prescription steroid nasal sprays and prescribed antihistamines work significantly better.
  • You waited too long
    Starting medication prescribed by your allergy or asthma doctor after allergies set-in makes treatment difficult.
  • You need some personal space from your pet
    Keeping them out of your bedroom will make a huge difference – as will a HEPA air purifier.
  • Your pet’s NOT hypoallergenic
    He might shed less hair, but you could be allergic to dander or saliva.
  • You DO need those expensive bedding covers
    Pillow and mattress encasings between 2-4 microns prevent dust mite migration for those with dust mite related allergies.
  • Neti pots work
    Even allergists use them.
  • You can’t outrun allergies
    No matter how far away you move, you could develop allergies anywhere at any time. And if you’re allergic to one kind of pollen, it increases your likelihood of developing allergies to other (new) pollens.
  • You don’t have to suffer
    Though you might feel like it, you won’t die from allergic rhinitis. But suffering through them without visiting the immunologist won’t win you a medal. Untreated symptoms could end up costing you more in sinus and ear infections – and lost sleep. Stop waiting for spontaneous remission and get help.

It’s a NEW YEAR!!! Time to quit suffering from allergies

Allergy child image

The army of allergy sufferers in this world know how difficult it is to live with their symptoms throughout the year. Although there are spikes in various allergens within your local environment at different times of the year, leaving allergies untreated means you are often miserable. That’s why it is important to trust your health to your Scottsdale Allergist at a local allergy or asthma clinic

Living with Allergies
This is a tall order for anyone who didn’t grow up with allergies. At any time, your body can react to allergens. Sometimes, the symptoms get so severe that you don’t want to get out of bed. Here are a few: headaches, shortness of breath, a feeling that your chest is swollen, clogged ears, a constant drip in the back of your throat, a scratchy feeling, swollen glands, blurry, itchy, and watery eyes, and constant fatigue.

Allergies have the power to affect your whole body. Oftentimes, it takes mind over body just to get through the day. And, if you have had allergies for any period of time, a daily antihistamine is not worth much more than a sugar pill. It only works on a good day when you believe in it. That’s the placebo effect. The rest of the time, the antihistamine is worthless.

Long-term solutions to allergies, whether seasonal or year-round, come with time. Trust your care to a talented allergy and asthma specialist. Our doctors are caring people who want to review all of your medical history and treat you as a whole patient. There will be things that you need to do to adjust your diet and remove allergens from your home. The total effect of medical treatments and small lifestyle changes will be worth it. Without the effects of allergies, you will have more energy and start to enjoy life again.
