Are You Allergic to Pollen? Dust Mites? Molds?
Yes, but why do I get these miserable allergy symptoms?
Your genetics are the single biggest factor contributing to your risk of developing allergies. And while there is no cure for allergies, our allergy team can help you identify the causes of your allergies and find the best treatment for you.
Allergic reactions are unique for every person, and although they tend to be more common in children, allergies can appear, disappear, or recur at any time and at any age. Likewise, reaction time and severity of symptoms also vary greatly from person to person.
You develop an allergy when your immune system has become sensitive to a normally harmless substance in your environment (like pollen) which it then interprets as a threat to your health. The substance is called an “allergen,” and when the immune system senses it, it sets off a series of events in your body that give you typical environmental allergy symptoms:
- Swollen nasal membranes
- A "stuffed up" feeling
- Runny nose
- Itchy eyes, nose or throat
- Red rash, or hives
