What Are Allergies?

Allergies are a reaction of your body's immune system to a substance that is normally harmless. These substances, called allergens, can be things like pollen, dust mites, pet dander, certain foods, or insect stings. When you come into contact with an allergen, your immune system overreacts, as if it's trying to protect you from a dangerous invader. This overreaction is what causes allergy symptoms.

Allergy Symptoms

Most mild allergy symptoms mimic those of the common cold. Some of the most common allergy symptoms we treat include:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Skin rash
  • Wheezing or coughing
  • Nausea or vomiting

When Should I Go to Urgent Care for Allergies?

If your allergies are causing significant discomfort that isn't improving with over-the-counter medication or your usual regimen, AFC Urgent Care can help. If you experience the following, visit our clinic today.

  • Trouble Breathing: Wheezing, shortness of breath, or chest tightness are worrying signs.
  • Trouble sleeping due to congestion: Lack of sleep can worsen allergy symptoms.
  • Facial swelling or hives that spread rapidly: This could signal a more serious allergic reaction.
  • Eye infections caused by allergies: Constant rubbing and irritation can lead to infections.
  • Skin Reactions: Hives, severe itching, or swelling that spreads quickly can be signs of a more serious allergic reaction.

Georgia’s Allergy Season

Georgia has a long allergy season that stretches from early spring all the way to late fall, thanks to the state's warm climate and diverse plant life. This means there's a good chance you'll encounter pollen triggers throughout a good portion of the year.

While April is generally considered the worst month for allergies in Georgia due to high tree pollen counts, you might experience symptoms at other times depending on what you're allergic to.

Common Allergens in Georgia

  • Tree pollen (February-May): Oak, birch
  • Grass pollen (May-June): Bermuda grass
  • Other allergens (August-November): Ragweed, sagebrush, pigweed
