Each year, millions of Americans seek treatment for seasonal allergies. If you’re among them, the bane of your springtime existence is probably pollen, a dust-like substance released into the air by budding trees and plants. Even though pollen is generally harmless, many people have an allergic reaction to it. Specifically, after mistaking the pollen you inhale for a harmful invader, such as a virus, your body’s immune system might attempt to destroy it, setting off a variety of uncomfortable symptoms.

If you need relief from disruptive allergies, you can visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Southbury, Connecticut. The experienced team in our walk-in urgent care center provides a full range of non-emergency health care services, including allergy treatment.

How to Tell if Your Immune System Is Overreacting

Most likely, you are a victim of seasonal allergies if you notice any of the following “cold” symptoms right around the advent of the spring bloom:

  • Nonstop sneezing or coughing
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Persistent dark circles under your eyes
  • A runny nose or nasal congestion
  • Sinus pressure and headaches
  • Hives or other skin rashes
  • Insomnia and trouble concentrating

In many cases, we can treat mild allergy symptoms with a nasal decongestant, an antihistamine, a nasal saline rinse, or a nasal steroid spray. If appropriate, we may also suggest allergy shots, which can help control your immune response to a specific allergen over time.

With that said, it’s important to note that a severe allergic reaction can be life-threatening. For instance, allergy symptoms such as persistent vomiting, wheezing, shortness of breath, dizziness, and loss of consciousness signal a medical emergency that warrants a call to 911 or an immediate trip to the nearest hospital ER.

If you need help dealing with non-emergency allergy symptoms, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is an excellent choice for personalized treatment. If you’d like to learn more, give us a call or stop by our urgent care center in Southbury today.

"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."

Patient
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."
