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.
