Environmental allergies are estimated to affect up to 40% of the general population, according to the World Health Organization. At Allergy, Asthma & Sinus Associates we have managed thousands of patients with environmental allergies. With over a decade of experience, we continue to set health industry standards when it comes to successfully diagnosing and managing both pediatric and adult environmental allergies.
What Is An Environmental Allergy?
An environmental allergy is the result of the body’s exaggerated immune response to various substances found in the environment. Common substances include dust mites, grasses, trees, weeds, and pet dander. This exaggerated immune response results in inflammation of the nasal and/or sinus membranes that presents as nasal congestion, sneezing, itchy nose/mouth/throat/eyes, cough, and sinus pressure.

Environmental Allergy Treatment
While there is no cure for environmental allergies, the symptoms can certainly be managed. While some patients benefit from prescription medication taken as needed for symptom relief, many patients prefer to be placed on allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots). At Allergy, Asthma & Sinus Associates we feel no two patients are alike and for that reason each patient’s treatment is tailored to their individual needs.
