Fast & Effective Allergy Treatment for Attleboro, MA, Patients
Allergic reactions can range from inconvenient to severe, but fortunately, allergy treatment can help relieve symptoms. If you are experiencing a life-threatening allergic reaction, call 911 or head to the nearest emergency room immediately. For more mild reactions such as seasonal allergies, turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Attleboro, Massachusetts, for prompt treatment and relief.
Allergy Causes & Symptoms
Allergic reactions happen when the immune system mistakenly attacks relatively benign substances (allergy triggers). These triggers can include things like:
- Pet dander
- Certain foods
Allergy symptoms vary based on the person, the trigger, and the severity of the allergy. Mild allergy symptoms typically include:
- Watery, red, and swollen eyes
- Stuffy or runny nose
Again, remember to call 911 right away for severe allergic reactions, which can produce symptoms like severe shortness of breath, rapid but weak pulse, lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting, and loss of consciousness.
Our providers can treat mild to moderate allergies by prescribing medication that is either taken orally or in the form of a nasal spray. You can also use supportive allergy care techniques, such as inhaling steam, flushing your sinuses, or applying a cool compress.
