At PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Derby, Connecticut, that’s exactly what we’re here for. We’ll take a look at your allergy symptoms to develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.

Treating Seasonal Allergy Symptoms

One of the best ways to treat seasonal allergies is to reduce your exposure. After all, since symptoms appear after being exposed to pollen and other airborne substances that trigger your immune system to react aggressively, it makes sense that limiting your risk can help with your symptoms. Here are some of the ways you can do that:

  • Keep an eye on the pollen counts in your area – If the pollen count is high or even medium-high, consider staying inside. Pollen counts tend to be higher in the morning and afternoon, too, so schedule outside events in the late afternoon and evening.
  • Switch to an air conditioner with a HEPA filter – A HEPA filter forces air through a fine mesh that will trap particles such as pollen, pet dander, and more. It’s a great option for those with seasonal allergies.
  • Take a shower whenever you come indoors – After spending time outside, make sure to take a shower and wash your hair to remove any pollen that may be lingering on you. You’ll also want to wash your clothes.

Of course, even taking these steps to treat allergy symptoms isn’t enough for some people. That’s why PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers prompt allergy treatment. We can recommend the right medications for your symptoms, whether that involves decongestants, nasal sprays, antihistamines, or a combination of these options.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
