Why Do You Experience Seasonal Allergies?

Many Americans deal with seasonal allergies, which are usually triggered by airborne pollen, a cloud of powdery dust released by blooming trees, flowers, grasses, and weeds. If you spend any amount of time outdoors in the spring, you can’t avoid breathing in pollen, which is largely harmless. However, you may experience an allergic reaction if your body’s immune system mistakes the pollen you inhale for a dangerous invader and attempts to attack and destroy it.

Most seasonal allergy symptoms, such as frequent sneezing, itchy eyes, and nasal congestion, respond well to treatment. For instance, the team at PhysicianOne Urgent Care may suggest that you try an antihistamine or decongestant. If you need further relief, we might recommend a series of allergy shots, which can help “rein in” your immune system’s reaction to a specific allergen over time.

On the other hand, a severe allergic reaction can lead to airway constriction (anaphylaxis), which is a life-threatening emergency. Therefore, you should call 911 or go directly to the nearest hospital ER If you experience difficulty breathing, wheezing, dizziness, fainting, vomiting, or severe stomach pain.

"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."
