Allergies

The severity of allergies varies from person to person– from minor irritation to potentially life-threatening emergency.

Common allergy triggers include pollen, animal dander, mold, certain foods, insect stings and medications. Increased risk if you have a family history, have asthma or are a child.

Here are some tips to help relieve your allergy symptoms:

  • Avoid know triggers– stay inside on high pollen days.
  • Frequently wash bedding and stuffed toys in hot water.
  • Use saline nasal irrigation
  • Wear medical bracelet

When to see a doctor:

  • Symptoms last more than 3 months and it’s hard to work or sleep.
  • You have tried over the counter medication and have not found relief.
  • You get many sinus infections, headaches, or ear infections.
  • You have other, more serious health problems.
