Common Allergy Symptoms
Many people experience the same type of symptoms in regard to allergies. This is how we can tell if it is allergies or something more severe.
If you experience a fever along with any of these symptoms, it is likely not allergies and may be a virus.
Allergy Treatment Options
Seasonal allergies can be treated in different ways, depending on what the symptoms are. Antihistamines can be recommended or prescribed for those who have sneezing and coughing as symptoms.
Medicated ointments can be prescribed as well for patients who experiences rashes as allergic reactions.
Immunotherapy can also be recommended for chronic allergies. These shots can happen once every three to five years, depending on severity.
