Ah-choo! Allergy Season in Houston Is Here

The beginning of the year brings with it the beginning of allergy season. Houstonians will soon be hit with sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and the onslaught of a pretty miserable time.

You may have noticed that the daylight is lingering a bit longer (fyi: daylight savings will be March 11). With more daylight comes more pollen in the air. The pollen stems from trees, grasses, flowers, weeds, and the like. When your eyes start watering and the back of your throat starts itching, you should run to your local pharmacy for allergy medicine.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ALLERGY MEDS DON’T WORK?

The fact of the matter is sometimes allergy medicine doesn’t work to fight off those allergy symptoms. Sometimes the allergy medicine doesn’t affect certain allergies, or your allergies have become immune to the medicine.

When this happens, you should schedule an allergy therapy appointment at our southwest Houston medical clinic. Our medical staff will ensure you receive the proper medicine to fend off those pollen spores.

GET THE RIGHT ALLERGY DIAGNOSIS

Too often, patients at our Houston family medical clinic have been trying to fight off their allergies without really knowing what they’re allergic to. Instead of guessing at why they keep having allergy symptoms every year, we take the time to figure out exactly why they keep having these symptoms.

Common external allergies for patients are:

Through certain medical tests conducted by our doctors, we are able to pinpoint precisely the allergy and then successfully treat it. This will help ensure you don’t suffer year after year with the same allergy issues.

SCHEDULE YOUR ALLERGY TEST TODAY

If you are an allergy sufferer, then contact our Houston medical facility today and schedule your allergy test. We look forward to eliminating your miserable times with allergies.
