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 allergies, and an allergic reaction can occur anywhere in the body. Coping with allergies is difficult, and even more so if you aren’t sure what triggers your allergy symptoms.
Although the name implies they only occur in the springtime, seasonal allergies can actually 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.
At AFC Urgent Care Short Pump, our highly knowledgeable physicians can confirm you have an allergy or multiple allergies, find your triggers, and help educate you on how to minimize exposure to them.
If you’ve endured seasonal allergy symptoms for months without getting relief from over-the-counter medicines, you should consider seeing a doctor.
