What is often referred to as Hay Fever is stimulated by pollens from the trees, grass and weeds in the great outdoors.
“The Pittsburgh Allergist” offers treatment for Allergic Rhinitis for those suffering. Allergic Rhinitis is caused by allergens, which are usually harmless substances but trigger an allergic reaction in some people.
You’ll usually feel one or more of these symptoms immediately after coming into contact with an allergen. Some symptoms, such as recurrent headaches and fatigue, may only happen after long-term exposure to allergens. Fever isn’t a symptom of hay fever.
Symptoms of allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, frequently include:
Nose, eye itching
A runny nose with clear mucus
Excess tears production in the eyes
In the past, typical allergic reaction symptoms were confused with symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). When the symptoms are properly treated, they can be minimized or eliminated, which reduces or removes any disruption in the learning process.
There is no real cure for seasonal allergies, but it is possible to relieve symptoms. With the use of some medications you can get relief.
Our Medications include:
Depending on the symptoms and severity, your doctor may advocate for immunotherapy, or allergy shots. This plan of action may be used alongside your medications in order to keep your symptoms under control. The shots you receive will minimize the allergic response to various allergens. How efficacious a home remedy is will be dependent on the severity of your allergic reactions. Seasonal symptoms for pollen may be alleviated by making use of an air conditioner – so that you don’t need to open the window. Even better is if you add a special filter to remove pollens.
Dehumidifiers and/or HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters may assist in controlling your allergic responses while in your home. If your allergies are to dust mites, washing your sheets and blankets in hot water - temperatures of at least 130°F (54.4°C) and adding a HEPA filter to your vacuum cleaner may also help.
