The first line of therapy for allergies is avoidance. Knowing what activates allergies through testing allows allergy sufferers to avoid being exposed to harmful triggers. Advanced ENT & Allergy helps its patients by giving them knowledge on what to avoid to keep their allergies in check.
Immunotherapy is one of the only scientifically proven methods to control allergies in the long-term. Ideal for those who cannot avoid allergic triggers and have problems managing their allergies or do not like feeling “medicated”.
Sublingual therapy is a convenient way of administering immunotherapy. Drops are placed under the tongue once a day at home by the patient.
Allergy shots are a once-a-week injection given at any of nine (9) conveniently located offices.
Allergy tablets are a great alternative to allergy shots. Patients take a once-a-day tablet that dissolves quickly under the tongue. The tablets can help with the most common allergies (from grass and ragweed).
Allergies or Allergic Rhinitis is a disorder that occurs when the body detects foreign substances called allergens. Allergies occur because the body’s defense system mistakes harmless allergens for something potentially harmful. The symptoms of allergic rhinitis occur when a substance called histamine is released into the blood. The histamine causes the most common symptoms of allergies, such as sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, runny nose, itchy throat and a stuffy nose. Other less common symptoms a patient might experience include chronic sinusitis, dizziness, ear problems, rashes, hives and stomach problems.
Food allergy is a progressive disease that builds on itself. An allergic individual becomes progressively worse until their symptoms become severe enough to seek medical treatment.
Fungus lives on our skin naturally. A break in the skin can allow the fungus to enter the body, resulting in an infection. This infection can cause a variety of symptoms, including rashes and gastrointestinal problems.
