An allergy occurs when the human body attempts to defend itself from harmful invaders, such as bacteria or viruses, but the defenses are too aggressive and cause unpleasant symptoms. There are multiple types of allergens, such as pollen, grass, flowers, and weeds. Insect stings, dust mites, and animal dander can also cause allergic reactions. Coping with allergies is difficult, and even more so if you aren’t sure what triggers your allergy symptoms, we at AFC Urgent Care San Diego can help test for the causes of your allergic reactions, often with a simple blood test!
What are the symptoms of allergic reactions?
Most symptoms appear in the nose, lungs, throat, sinuses, ears, eyes, lining of the stomach or on the skin which may include:
Itchy nose, eyes, throat, and ears
Dark under-eye circles
Our knowledgeable and highly trained Medical Professionals can confirm if you have an allergy or multiple allergies, find your triggers and help educate you on how to minimize your exposure.
What Are Seasonal Allergies?
Although the name implies, they only occur in the springtime, seasonal allergies can strike any time of the year, especially if a person has more than one trigger. Common triggers for seasonal allergies include pollen, oaks, and grass, as well as other airborne irritants. Often, seasonal allergy sufferers go without a diagnosis for years, unaware that prescription allergy treatments can provide better symptom relief than over-the-counter remedies. Common signs of seasonal allergies include:
Stuffy, runny nose
Puffy, itchy, or watery eyes
Sore or itchy throat
Difficulty falling asleep due to symptoms
