Your Choice for Allergy Treatment in Connecticut, Massachusetts & New York
Since PhysicianOne Urgent Care was founded in 2008, we’ve made it our goal to deliver high-quality care with ease and speed. We’re pleased to offer allergy treatment at our urgent care centers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York.
The symptoms of an allergic reaction will vary from one person to another, but often include:
· Watery, red, or swollen eyes
· A stuffy or runny nose
· Hives (a raised rash that may be red or skin-colored)
An allergic reaction occurs when a person’s immune system mistakenly identifies a harmless foreign substance (allergen) as being dangerous, then takes steps to fight off that substance. Allergies can be divided into different categories based on the type of allergen involved, such as:
· Seasonal allergies (e.g., pollen)
· Environmental allergies (e.g., pet dander, dust mites, and mold)
· Food allergies (e.g., peanuts, wheat, and shellfish)
Depending on your specific circumstances, our providers may recommend a combination of the following allergic reaction treatments:
· Taking medication
· Using a nasal spray
· Rinsing your sinuses with a neti pot
· Inhaling steam
· Applying a cool compress
Remember to always call 911 or get to a nearby emergency room if you experience life-threatening allergy symptoms such as severe shortness of breath, lightheadedness, nausea/vomiting, a rapid but weak pulse, or loss of consciousness.
