Do you sneeze constantly or suffer from shortness of breath?
Maybe your eyes are watering or itching non-stop or you are suffering from frequent sinus headaches?
A healthy living program should include controlling your allergies. If you think your are having symptoms, it might be a good idea to find an allergist.
An allergist can help you find relief from conditions such as:
- Asthma and frequent cough
- Hay fever
- Sinus infections, Eye allergies
- Reactions to food, insect stings and drugs
- Skin allergies, including eczema and hives
- Immune system problems that might cause frequent infections
An allergist is trained to find the source of your symptoms, treat them and help you feel healthy.
After earning a medical degree, the doctor must complete a three-year residency-training program in either internal medicine or pediatrics. After that, an allergist completes two or three more years of study in the field of asthma, allergy and immunology.
When you find the allergist you are looking for, they should be able to help you create an allergy action plan.
