Allergies Q&A

Why am I getting allergies?

Allergies result from an overactive immune system. With allergies, your immune system confuses a harmless substance, such as dust or a type of food, for a deadly intruder. Your body also may have this same overreaction when you're exposed to insect venom, which is admittedly more dangerous, but usually not lethal.

When your body overreacts, it does its best to flush out the substance that it perceives as dangerous. This response can lead to a multitude of uncomfortable allergy symptoms, including a cough and runny nose. 

What are the signs of allergies?

Your allergy symptoms depend on the allergen or allergens that provoked a response in your immune system. The list of potential allergens is long and varies from person to person. 

Certain foods, pet dander, pollens, medication, insects, and materials like latex can trigger allergic symptoms, which may include:

  • Sneezing
  • Itchy/watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Hives
  • Rash
  • Chest congestion
  • Wheezing
  • Difficulty breathing  

Another symptom, a chronic cough, is often caused by an undiagnosed allergy or irritation in the environment.

What is the treatment for allergies?

The first step is to pinpoint the source of your allergies correctly through comprehensive allergy testing. Once that's accomplished, your provider at Cure Allergy Clinic may recommend avoiding substances that trigger your allergies or suggest advanced treatment options to minimize or cure your allergies. 

You may benefit from:

Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) or allergy drops

Allergy drops go under your tongue, where they work by gradually desensitizing you to an allergen. Cure Allergy Clinic uses the most potent, undiluted, and state-of-the-art extracts available.

Subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) or allergy shots

Similar to allergy drops, allergy shots build up your natural immunity. Shots are effective against environmental allergens, such as pollen, animals, mold, and dust mites. 

With a food allergy, Cure Allergy Clinic suggests food desensitization therapy, which uses the latest techniques in sublingual (under the tongue) and oral immunotherapy. 

If you've experienced a chronic cough in conjunction with your allergies, your provider at Cure Allergy Clinic draws on their diverse experience in internal medicine, lung diseases, and allergic diseases to recommend an effective treatment. All programs at Cure Allergy Clinic were created by a board-certified allergist with advanced training in allergic diseases.
