posted: May 22, 2023.
Allergies can be extremely difficult to deal with. They can cause irritation and inflammation and interfere with your daily routine. You might struggle to focus during meetings and find that you’re much less productive when you’re dealing with allergies. It’s important that you’re taking steps to manage your allergy symptoms so that you can continue to live without interruption as often as possible. Your ENT doctors at South Florida ENT Associates in Hollywood, Weston, Pembroke Pines, Ft. Lauderdale, and Boca Raton, FL, can explain how allergies can be managed and how you can avoid dealing with symptoms.
Managing Your Allergies
The best way to manage your allergies is to avoid your allergens. These allergens trigger an autoimmune response that causes symptoms that can be irritating and frustrating to deal with. Our ENT doctors can test for allergies to determine what could cause your symptoms. Once these allergens are identified, it’s important that you avoid them as much as possible.
Avoiding allergens isn’t always viable, so there are other ways to deal with these triggers. Over-the-counter antihistamines and decongestants can help with symptoms like a stuffy nose or congestion. Asthma medications can help if your symptoms cause breathing problems and steroid nasal sprays can help open up airways.
Another option to help manage your symptoms is immunotherapy. This helps expose you to an allergen slowly so that your body can build up a proper immunity to it. This helps lessen your allergic reaction and can eventually help your immune system understand that it isn’t a threat.
