When to See an Allergist

While mild allergies may not need any treatment, and some can be managed with over-the-counter medication, more severe allergies and any case of asthma should be treated by a specialist. Allergists are trained to help identify your specific irritants and develop personalized treatment plans (including medication and management tools) that will give you a better quality of life and allow you to enjoy your environment. Here are some considerations if you are wondering whether to consult an allergist:

Your allergy symptoms last for several months out of the year:

If you suffer from allergies several months out of the year, you may be suffering from “perennial allergic rhinitis”. A few factors that can contribute to long-lasting allergy symptoms include:

- Allergies to common household or indoor allergens such as dust or pets
- Not taking proper precautions to avoid allergens and irritants
- Skipping your prescribed medication or taking it incorrectly
- Self-diagnosis that is incorrect and leads to ineffective treatment

If your allergy symptoms seem to go on for extended periods of time, come in to Allergy & Asthma Care of Wylie. We can provide  proper diagnosis and treatment, and ensure that you are prescribed the right medication for your condition. We can also discuss allergy shots as an option to provide long-lasting relief.

Asthma and allergies are interfering with your day-to-day life:

Many people live in discomfort for years, dealing with their allergy symptoms for the simple reason that they have become accustomed to the coughing, sneezing, congestion, and difficulty breathing. At Allergy & Asthma Care of Wylie, we can help with personalized treatment plans that will give you your life back and restore your comfort.

Over-the-counter medications don’t do much to relieve your symptoms:

If you have been taking over-the-counter medication to relieve your symptoms, but this doesn’t seem to help, it may be time to seek professional treatment from an allergist like Dr. Angela. While some over-the-counter medication can help relieve symptoms in the short run, Dr. Angela can prescribe medication and immunotherapy that will greatly improve your quality of life and allow you to enjoy your environment without uncomfortable symptoms.

Your allergy symptoms last for several months out of the year:

If you suffer from allergies more than three months out of the year, this condition is known as “chronic sinusitis”. A few factors that can contribute to long-lasting allergy symptoms include:

- Not taking proper precautions to avoid allergens and irritants
- Skipping your prescribed medication or taking it incorrectly
- Self-diagnosis that is incorrect and leads to ineffective treatment
