Services SnoreNoMoreDeviceEnvironmental allergies, also known as seasonal allergies or hay fever, occur when your immune system reacts to substances in the environment that are typically harmless, such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or mold spores. When you come into contact with these allergens, your immune system mistakenly identifies them as threats and releases chemicals like histamine, causing the unpleasant symptoms associated with allergies.

Common symptoms of allergies

  • Runny nose (rhinorrhea)
  • Nasal obstruction
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sneezing and itching
  • Post nasal drip
  • Nasal pressure

Allergy Testing

Personalized care tailored to your specific needs is necessary to treat allergies. Our experienced doctors and allergists will work closely with you to develop an individualized treatment plan. Our facility offers comprehensive allergy testing services to identify the specific allergens triggering your symptoms. These include dozens of allergens including dust mites, mold spores, pets, weeds, grasses, trees, and foods. Testing can take less than 45 minutes and results are provided immediately upon testing completion.

Allergy Treatment

The primary goals of allergy treatment are to relieve your symptoms, reduce your sensitivity to allergens, and improve your overall quality of life. We offer a range of effective treatments, including:

  1. Medications: You may be prescribed antihistamines, decongestants, or nasal sprays (among other medications) to alleviate your symptoms and manage allergic reactions.
  2. Allergen Avoidance: We will provide you with practical advice on how to minimize exposure to allergens, such as creating an allergen-free environment at home, using air purifiers, and implementing proper hygiene practices.
  3. Immunotherapy (see below for more detail): Also known as allergy shots, immunotherapy is a long-term treatment option that can effectively treat the root cause of your allergies. It involves gradually exposing you to small amounts of the allergen, helping your immune system build tolerance over time..

Immunotherapy: A Cure for Allergies

Immunotherapy, commonly referred to as allergy shots, is a highly effective treatment that can provide long-term relief from environmental allergies. It works by desensitizing your immune system to the allergens that trigger your symptoms. Over time, this treatment can reduce the severity of your allergic reactions and, in many cases, lead to a complete cure.

Our practice offers comprehensive allergy testing and treatment including medications and immunotherapy (allergy shots). For further information, or to book an appointment with one of our physicians CONTACT US at our Plantation (954-476-0400) or Coral Springs (954-796-0400) office.
