While many may think that allergies only refer to itchy eyes, a runny nose, or nasal congestion, there are actually many other types of allergies out there. Various allergies may cause sinus problems that come back regularly. What you thought was a common everyday headache may actually be something different that can be prevented.
Some allergy symptoms include head congestion, frequent colds, asthma, coughing, dizziness, stomach problems, rashes and fatigue. Allergy symptoms can range from moderate to severe and should be treated immediately. If you have been suffering from any of these symptoms frequently or for long periods of time, our ENT physician should be seen to help you in finding out what the problem is and advise you on the best allergy treatments available.
An allergy skin test is the most common way to test for allergies. This is also known as a prick test. The goal of the test is to determine which types of substances are triggering your allergy symptoms. First, an extract of the allergen is applied to your skin. The skin is then pricked lightly in order to allow exposure of the substance. The reaction is then monitored for a specified period of time to see what happens to the skin and if any symptoms are experienced. The reactions will be recorded and Dr. Jones will request a follow-up.
Dr. Jones, a trusted Ear, Nose and Throat physician, will be able to decide the best approach for your allergy treatments. He is also a Fellow of American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy requiring a certification process.
