April 9, 2021

It’s finally allergy season and the pollen count in New York City is increasing each day. Are you feeling symptoms of hay fever when you step outside? Hayfever symptoms may include:

  • Itchy nose, mouth, eyes, throat, and skin
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Watery eyes
  • Stuffy nose (nasal congestion)
  • Coughing
  • Clogged ears and decreased sense of smell
  • Sore throat
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Puffiness under the eyes
  • Fatigue and irritability
  • Headache or migraine

Then you may have seasonal allergies. Tree and grass pollen are the main culprits for these symptoms. Research shows that plants are pollinating longer, so allergy season may be extended this year.

At NY Allergy & Sinus Centers, we offer a variety of treatment options to get you feeling better fast. Here is what you need to survive this allergy season.

An Allergy Center Near You

As allergy season grows longer, you need an allergy center near you to help soothe your symptoms. A board-certified allergist can determine what you are allergic to and provide the best treatment available for your allergies. NY Allergy & Sinus Centers offers ten allergy centers throughout New York City. We specialize in same-day diagnoses and treatments. We also offer online booking for your convenience. Just choose the location nearest you and book an appointment today. 

Asthma Biologics

During allergy season, asthma symptoms may exacerbate. You may experience wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. Inhaled asthma medications are sometimes not enough to prevent an asthma attack. That’s why we offer biologic treatments for asthma. Biologics are used along with your medications to help soothe your symptoms. 

Biologic treatments have been proven to be very effective in improving asthma. When used along with your regular asthma medications, treatments improve symptoms and reduce asthma attacks in patients by helping to stop the process that causes lung inflammation. Biologics also reduce the need for oral/inhalation steroids as well as the dosage of other maintenance asthma medication. For more information on this treatment, call our allergy specialists at (212) 686-6321 and ask how you can get started today.

Epinephrine Auto-Injector

Most people only experience allergic rhinitis during allergy season, but there are more serious allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis. Insects such as bees and mosquitos are active this season and are known to cause this serious reaction. So, you need an EpiPen or Auvi-Q for immediate treatment. 

The allergists at NY Allergy & Sinus Centers can prescribe an epinephrine auto-injector to keep you prepared this season. Get your personalized allergy treatment plan today! 

Personalized Sinus Care

Did you know that cases of sinusitis increase during allergy season? This is because allergies cause the nasal and sinus passages to become swollen, congested, and inflamed. Congestion triggers sinusitis. You may also experience migraines and postnasal drip. You need personalized sinus care to feel better this season.

Our CBCT scan helps diagnose sinus conditions quickly so that our allergists can provide the most accurate treatment for you. Don’t wait to contact NY Allergy & Sinus Centers for personalized allergy and immunology care!
