Where to Turn for Prompt Allergy Treatment in Somers, NY

Ah, fresh air. There’s truly nothing like feeling the sun on your skin, the warm breeze, and… the sudden sneezing attack? If you deal with seasonal allergies, you’re probably well aware that being outside can be more of a nuisance than a joy, especially in the springtime when trees start releasing pollen left and right to fertilize nearby plants. Pollen allergies are some of the most common allergies to have, and if you’re suffering from uncomfortable symptoms, you can look to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Somers, New York, to provide the prompt allergy treatment you need.

What Are Seasonal Allergies?

When the immune system is exposed to an airborne substance that it perceives as dangerous (in this case, pollen), it goes into overdrive to attack the substance and get rid of it. In doing so, the immune system may cause the following symptoms to occur:

  • Nasal problems, such as a runny nose, congestion, or sneezing
  • Postnasal drip and a scratchy throat
  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Ear congestion
  • Sinus headaches
  • Itchy sinuses and sinus pressure

Most allergy symptoms can be treated at home. Over-the-counter antihistamine medications (such as Zyrtec or Claritin) and nasal sprays can help combat the symptoms you’re experiencing.

When to Seek Medical Treatment

While you should go immediately to the ER for severe allergy symptoms—such as sudden shortness of breath, hives, or gastrointestinal distress—mild-to-moderate symptoms can be effectively treated at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. We can help to identify the cause of your symptoms and provide prescription allergy treatment that may offer better relief than over-the-counter remedies. We can also talk to you about allergy shots and refer you to a specialist, if that’s an avenue you’d like to consider.

"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."
