Allergies

a drop in blood pressure that can cause a
loss of consciousness and shock.

DIAGNOSIS

A

n allergy is when your
immune system attacks
something that doesn’t bother
some other people, such as
pollen, mold, pet dander, food,
insect stings or bites.

The American Academy of Allergy
Asthma & Immunology says about 50 million Americans suffer from some allergy.

SYMPTOMS

Symptoms of allergies include a runny
nose, sneezing, itching, redness, rashes,
swelling and trouble breathing. Life threatening symptoms include anaphylaxis, a
severe reaction characterized by a feeling
of warmth, flushing, shortness of breath,
throat tightness, vomiting or diarrhea, and

Your doctor may send you to a specialist, an allergist or immunologist. Allergies
are diagnosed through skin or blood tests
combined with a thorough medical history
and physical exam. These tests can help
you identify triggers to minimize your
allergy symptoms.

TREATMENT

Other than avoiding as much as possible
the things that make you sick, there are a
variety of over-the-counter and prescription medications that can alleviate your
allergy symptoms. Always talk to your
doctor before starting any medication
and be aware that many antihistamines
and other medications can make you
very drowsy. Make sure to read the
labels thoroughly and ask a pharmacist if you’re concerned about drug
interactions.

A Friendly Reminder:

Schedule Your
Annual Exam Today!
Preventive care is an important part of
your continued good health, and an annual
physical is a great first step. Scheduling an
annual exam allows your doctor to keep track
of your health history, ensure you are up to
date on vaccines and screenings, and often
detect potentially serious health
issues before they cause major problems.
