Common Types of Allergies and Symptoms
Allergies, or allergic reactions, are characterized by an overreaction of your body’s immune system to a foreign substance referred to as an allergen. The routes of allergen exposure include inhalation, contact, ingestion, and injection.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Allergies at ENT Consultants of East Tennessee
Our ENT experts are specially trained to diagnose and treat allergies of all types. Treatment options typically include allergy drops, allergy shots, which are customized to deal with allergens unique to our region, as well as medical prescriptions.
Sublingual immunotherapy (allergy drops) for patients age 6 and up are a safe and effective alternative to traditional allergy shots we provide at ENT Consultants of East TN. Among the benefits of these drops is their capacity to be dispensed at home, an overall reduction or elimination of daily allergy symptoms and medications, and no more weekly trips to the doctor.
With cases involving ongoing or chronic allergic reactions, some of our patients are good candidates for balloon sinuplasty procedures in order to reduce sinus inflammation. Cases that require additional or alternative types of medical experts are often referred to other specialists such as a pulmonologist.
