Allergies


 

New Braunfels, TX Allergy Center


  • Do you have itchy watery eyes?
  • Are you constantly sneezing?
  • Do you have a runny nose?
  • Do you get frequent headaches?
  • Have you noticed a strange skin reaction or irritation to certain plants or animal fur?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then it’s time to come in and get an Allergy test!


Our Process

When you come into the office we will work with the patient and provide:

  • Education regarding allergic disease process
  • Identification of specific allergy triggers
  • Elimination and avoidance of allergens
    • The first most basic treatment step, once an allergen has been identified, is to eliminate or avoid contact with it, if possible. Unfortunately, avoiding some allergens (such as dust, molds, and animals) is often difficult and thus allergen avoidance alone may not be effective.
  • Medical treatments (for allergies)
    • Medications can frequently control allergy symptoms. These may include antihistamines, decongestants, prescription nasal sprays, leukotriene inhibitors and other types of products.
  • Steroid injections for severe flare-ups
    • Allergy shots or drops to desensitize the patient
