Allergy Treatment Steps

Set Up an Appointment

Making an appointment with an asthma or allergy specialist is your first step toward finally finding relief. While there is no cure for asthma, many patients benefit from a combination approach that involves avoiding the allergen trigger and controlling or preventing symptoms with the use of medication.

Meanwhile, as the result of your immune system’s exaggerated response to a harmless substance, allergies can affect people of all ages, races and lifestyles.

Undergo Allergy Tests

The only way to treat your allergy symptoms is to determine their exact cause, which is accomplished through a series of allergy tests, such as:

  • Skin prick test.
  • Intradermal test.
  • Blood test.

Tests for asthma often measure lung function. Your doctor may recommend:

  • Spirometry.
  • Bronchoprovocation tests .
  • Peak expiratory flow tests.

Create a Treatment Plan

The most common method of taking asthma medication is through use of an inhaler, a small canister that delivers a metered dose of medication when activated. Inhalers are critical during severe asthma attacks, which require immediate medical intervention.

Allergies can be treated through prevention, medication or immunotherapy.

  • Prevention involves avoiding contact with the allergen that triggers your symptoms.
  • Medications include antihistamines, decongestants, nasal sprays, eye drops and corticosteroids.
  • Immunotherapy involves building up a tolerance to an allergen by introducing it to the body in small doses over a period of time through shots, drops or tablets.

Allergies aren’t always as obvious as they might appear, and OTC treatments may not be the best option. We can determine the true cause of your allergies and help you choose a targeted allergy treatment that works for you. Breathe easy. Schedule today.
