Allergy Treatment in Bellevue & Redmond
You may not know this, but the majority of allergies can be treated in primary care. With a dwindling number of practicing allergists, primary-care clinics like BelRed Internal Medicine, PLLC are prepared to identify and treat your allergic conditions.
What is an allergy?
Allergies are an abnormal response of the immune system in the human body. If you currently have allergies that means that your particular immune system will react adversely to a usually harmless substance in your environment. These harmless substances, for example pollen, mold and animal dander, are called allergens.
Is it a cold or allergies?
Both have symptoms like sneezing, coughing, runny nose and puffy and itchy eyes. If these symptoms appear at the same time every year or certain times throughout the year than seasonal allergies might be the culprit. When you are allergic to something the immune system tries to ward off the allergen by releasing allergic mediators that cause all of the annoying symptoms like, sneezing, running nose and coughing. While allergies and a cold have very similar symptoms they are different diseases that require different treatment. A cold is treated with plenty of rest, liquids and decongestants, while seasonal allergies can be treated with antihistamines, nasal steroid sprays, decongestants, avoidance and immunotherapy, or commonly called allergy shots. However, determining what allergens you’re allergic to is the first step in treating seasonal allergies. Once these allergens are recognized by an allergy skin (prick) test, the right form of treatment can be determined.
