Nasal Allergy

 

Do you suffer from itchy, watery eyes, chronic headaches, constant sneezing, runny nose, or sinus congestion?

If you battle these symptoms, you may be suffering from allergies. You are not alone; one out of every five Americans is affected by allergies. The most common form is allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever. Not only can the symptoms of allergic rhinitis lead to misery and lost productivity, but allergies can even lead to more severe health problems including sinusitis and asthma.

Relief is Here!

At Central Texas ENT Specialists, we want to get to the root of your problem to help you eliminate your allergy symptoms. We begin by testing you for all nasal allergies including allergens that are unique to the Brazos Valley. This testing can demonstrate the specific triggers for your allergy problem and allows us to tailor a treatment plan especially for you. Once we identify your allergies, we offer a number of treatment options, including allergy avoidance counseling, over-the-counter and prescription medication therapy, allergy injections and sublingual immunotherapy.

   Allergy Shots:

remain the cornerstone of Central Texas Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists’ immunotherapy program. This tried and true therapy works with your own body’s immune system to naturally desensitize you to your allergen triggers. Most patients will experience a lasting reduction in allergy symptoms, as well as a decreased dependence on allergy medication.

   Allergy Drops:

  • Low cost
  • Fewer clinic visits
  • Treats the cause and not just the symptoms
  • NO NEEDLES

Recognizing that many allergy sufferers may not be able to comply with an allergy injection regimen, Central Texas ENT Specialists has also pioneered the use of sublingual immunotherapy. Instead of receiving weekly shots in the doctor’s office, patients administer allergy drops daily under the tongue at home.  For people with hectic home, school, work and travel schedules, this therapy offers a convenient solution.   For many patients, sublingual therapy has a higher compliance rate than traditional shots.
