Allergy Treatment Available to Patients at Our Stratford, CT, Urgent Care Center
Itching, hives, nasal congestion—you’ve got it all. Whether you’re experiencing seasonal allergies or another type of allergic reaction, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care. We’ve been treating patients since 2008, and we’re pleased to offer walk-in allergy treatment at our immediate care center in Stratford, Connecticut.
What Kind of Allergies Do You Have?
When your immune system mistakenly identifies an external substance (an allergen) as being harmful, it will attempt to fight it off. This is what’s known as an allergic reaction. The type of allergies you’re experiencing will depend on the allergen responsible for your reaction. Some common forms include:
- Seasonal allergies – Pollen is often the culprit during allergy season. This might come in the form of tree pollen in the spring, grass pollen in the summer, or ragweed pollen in the fall.
- Environmental allergies – Certain substances around you can trigger an allergic reaction. For example, many people are sensitive to dust mites, mold, and pet dander.
- Food allergies – People can be allergic to certain types of food, including wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, fish, and shellfish.
- Medication allergies – Although any type of medication can cause an allergic reaction, penicillin is one of the most common triggers.
