Know When to Consider Seeing a Doctor for Your Seasonal
Many individuals suffer from some form of seasonal allergies that are oftentimes weather related. However, some individual’s seasonal allergies are more severe than others, which can require more than over the counter treatments. The goal of this article will be to go over how you will know if it may be time to see a doctor about treatments for your allergy symptoms.
You Also Have Asthma
Those who suffer from asthma are often at a greater risk during allergy season. You might find during this time that your asthma symptoms are worse and that you are suffering from sinus issues as well. This is due to the fact that allergies and asthma often go hand-in-hand; in fact, seasonal allergies can trigger frequent asthma attacks. It can then be important to see a doctor about treatments to help manage your additional symptoms during this time of year. Treating your asthma and your allergy symptoms together is the most effective treatment option in this case.
Your Symptoms are Severe
Those who suffer from prolonged or severe symptoms as a result of seasonal allergies and have not found relief through over the counter medications can benefit from consulting a doctor. It is likely that you suffer from a more severe form of allergic rhinitis that can not be treated by these medications. In this case, seeing a doctor can help to reduce, or even remove, symptoms through the use of prescription medications, allergy shots, and/or other treatment options.
For many individuals who suffer from severe allergies, symptoms can get in the way of daily life. If you find that your allergies wear you down or get in the way of your day-to-day activities, then you should consider coming to FirstCare Medical Center’s physicians in Highland and New Paltz for prescription medications that could profoundly reduce your symptoms.
