Diagnosis: Recognizing your unique allergy profile

High-quality testing is the foundation of comprehensive allergy health. Your allergies are as individual as you are, and testing offers the information needed to create a personalized treatment strategy. Testing must be thorough and accurate to determine whether you have food, environmental, or animal allergies. The procedure entails gradually exposing you to little levels of allergens that cause the most well-known allergies. Our skilled professionals will keep a careful eye on your skin's reaction to assure your safety and comfort, as well as establish which allergies your body is sensitive to.

A thorough evaluation of your medical history, in addition to allergy testing, will ensure that your action plan is well-designed. Your immune system, underlying medical issues, and health goals are all unique characteristics that must be addressed in your personalized treatment approach.

A proper diagnosis will result in a powerful plan of action. This step is critical to ensure that your treatment is safe, effective, and designed for success. You can trust the expert care at Emerald ENT because we understand that no treatment will fully work unless it is unique to you.

Allergy Medications: Target the Symptoms

Because they have the largest impact on your everyday life, allergy symptoms are the most difficult components of your condition. Medication can help reduce or eliminate mild, moderate, and severe allergy symptoms. Many medications have been used to safely treat symptoms for decades. Clinical research has also aided in the development of new generations of drugs that are more successful in addressing symptoms such as:

  • Sneezing
  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Headache
  • Nasal/head congestion
  • Chest congestion
sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, could just be some of your allergy symptoms

Medications can be safe and often provide quick relief. They also contribute to your overall quality of life by reducing the allergen’s impact on your daily activities. Modern clinical research has given us many options including decongestants, corticosteroids, and antihistamines that target specific symptoms and come in many forms, including:

  • Nasal Spray
  • Skin Cream
  • Pill/Capsule
  • Liquid solution
  • Eye drops
  • Inhalers
medication could be a short term solution to allergy relief

Allergy medicine is a safe, effective, and cost-efficient option that can be incorporated into your plan. Medication can be used as a short-term remedy to control symptoms or as part of a longer-term treatment plan to improve your overall health. Any medication-based treatment plan will entail a thorough examination of your medical history to ensure that it does not affect any underlying diseases or produce side effects. Our staff will consider everything and provide you with the information you need to make the most informed and goal-oriented decision possible.

Immunotherapy: Going beyond symptom relief

Treating symptoms can provide relief, but if you want to find long-term relief then a customized immunotherapy plan may be the best solution for you. To understand how this can reduce or eliminate underlying allergies, it is important to know how an allergic reaction works.  

Your immune system protects you every moment of every day from any number of germs, bacteria, pollutants, and other foreign substances that can cause damage to your body. However, this protective system sometimes reacts to a harmless substance. The body’s response to this harmless substance is the swelling, itching, sneezing, and other reactions that we commonly refer to as an allergy attack. If your goal is to reduce or eliminate your underlying allergies, then we must reprogram the body to respond appropriately to harmless substances.

This process involves exposing yourself to tiny amounts of specific allergens over time. With each safe exposure, your body learns that the substance is harmless. As the doses increase over time, you will find that your allergy symptoms are reduced and it may be possible to eliminate some allergies.

To receive effective immunotherapy, you must have a plan that specifically targets your exact allergy issues. After detailed testing, you can choose from the two most common forms of therapy: allergy drops or allergy shots. Both types are effective and have provided safe allergy solutions for many years. You have the option to choose the specific treatment plan that works for your unique situation.

Allergy Shots

The most common and oldest form of allergy therapy involves allergy shots. This option has been safely used for more than a century and has provided relief for generations of allergy sufferers.  

Each treatment injection is a customized mixture of allergens that are specific to you. The amount of the allergen is critical because there must be just enough to prompt an immune response, but not enough to trigger an attack.

Shot-based treatment programs will require frequent trips to the doctor's office so that your shots may be safely administered by a medical practitioner. This is necessary to ensure that the dose is delivered accurately and to safeguard you against a rare adverse response. Though allergy injection needles are quite tiny and cause minimal discomfort, they can produce rapid symptom relief which can be seen after only a few sessions. You will eventually enjoy long-term relief, and in some cases, you may be able to eliminate your allergies.

Allergy Drops: Safe, Effective, and Convenient

Allergy drops work through the same scientific principles as allergy shots. This modern allergy treatment option replaces the needle with a simple drop that is placed under the tongue. The solution in the drop also contains safe amounts of your specific allergens. Unlike shots, allergy drops do not require a doctor’s visit and therefore have a few unique advantages. Allergy drops allow you to maintain control of:  

  • Your place: You can have successful allergy treatment at home, at the office, or any place that works for you.
  • Your schedule: Allergy drops can be taken when it is convenient for you.
  • Your comfort: Allergy drops eliminate the discomfort of shots.
