Allergies


Allergies are generally a major cause of seasonal or year-round nose and sinus problems. Allergies are caused by a release of a chemical substance in the body called histamine. This chemical is responsible for producing the symptoms of allergies. Allergies can appear at any age, and often run in families. Allergic reactions can result from things such as; certain foods, plants, pollens, dust, animal hair, feathers, molds, soaps, cosmetics, and clothes.

Signs and symptoms of allergies include:

  • Itching or watery eyes
  • Skin rashes such as eczema or hives
  • Chronic colds
  • Nasal or sinus congestion
  • Itching
  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, make an appointment as SHS. Allergies can be effectively treated and controlled.

If you are receiving Allergy Immunotherapy (shots), we can arrange to keep your serums and administer your injections. The cost is $2.00 per shot.
