Why do we get allergic reactions in the spring?

Allergic reactions in the spring occur due to the blooming of trees and plants, and their release of pollen into the air we breathe. Some of the most common allergens responsible for spring allergies include trees, grasses, ragweed, and mold.

What can you do to treat your allergies?

Medications can alleviate symptoms and may be effective for some patients. However, for others, immunotherapy is the best direction. Immunotherapy involves a series of treatments such as allergy shots or allergy drops, which can provide long-term relief. ¬†This treatment decreases a patient’s sensitivity to an allergen by introducing an ever-increasing dose of the triggering substance over time. The treatment builds resistance in the patient and lessens symptoms over time. Individualized medication or immunotherapy has proven to be a highly effective treatment for many patients.
