Allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, is one of the most common allergies, but there are many types of allergens:
Symptoms that develop when you have an allergic reaction include:
Before you can receive treatment, your provider at My Primary Care Clinic needs to identify your specific allergens. Two types of tests are used to diagnose allergies:
If you have a food allergy, you must eliminate that food from your diet. Otherwise, treatment for other allergies depends on the severity of your reaction.
Mild allergies may be relieved by finding ways to reduce your exposure to the allergen and treated with over-the-counter antihistamines.
Immunotherapy is an effective option for moderate to severe allergies. During immunotherapy, your allergen is introduced into your body either with an injection or using sublingual tablets.
Treatment begins with a very small amount of your allergen. Then, on a regular schedule, the amount is gradually increased. Over time, your body builds up tolerance to the allergen, which significantly diminishes or eliminates your reaction.
