Suffering from allergies can leave a person drowsy, uncomfortable, and, in some severe cases, requiring medical attention. A person can be allergic to many aspects of the world, and many are allergic to different things. For instance, where one person is allergic to pollen, another may be able to endure the smell of flowers for long periods of time; where one may have specific food allergies, another may eat without any worry of eating the wrong thing. If you live in an area that is rich in pollen, saturated in dust, or surrounded by substances that you are allergic, then you know how bad allergies can be during certain times of the year. In fact, hay fever (allergic rhinitis) is one of the most common conditions that affects a person’s breathing, immune system, and everyday activities. According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, “hay fever, respiratory allergies, and other allergies affect approximately 10 percent of children under 18 years old” (niaid.nih.gov, 2016). Symptoms of hay fever and other allergies include: sneezing, stuffy nose, runny nose, watery eyes, and itchy nose, eyes, and mouth. If you’ve ever had an allergic reaction to something, you know how uncomfortable it can be to go through your day with some or all of these symptoms.

Although allergies may not affect you while you are at home, they may affect you while you are visiting another city or when traveling in a different part of the county. Many times the allergens that caused an allergic episode away from home may still cause you to experience symptoms at home because those allergens are still attached to your clothes or are still in your system. Hay fever, for example, has been known to last for several days without any signs of relief from medications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported in February, 2016 that 19.1 million adults (over 18 years old) and 6.1 million children (under 18 years old) were diagnosed with hay fever over the past 12 months (cdc.gov, 2016). Although immunotherapy (allergy shots) has been known to reduce hay fever symptoms in 85 percent of patients (NCHS Data Brief, cdc.gov, 2013), some are not comfortable with receiving it or their religious beliefs do not allow them to do so. Fortunately, at Remedy Medical Group, our methods help us find a mutual solution that focuses on the cause of your allergies to find a long term solution, rather than providing a temporary fix like most medications.
