Triggers

Allergies have many triggers that are frequently unavoidable.

Outdoor (Tree, Grass or Weed Pollen)

Pollen allergies can cause allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and are typically seasonal.  As many as 60 million Americans suffer from hay fever. Unless you stay indoors, you can’t avoid pollen several months a year.

Indoor (Dust Mites)

Dust or dust mite allergies affect 20 million Americans. They cause nasal symptoms, eye inflammation, asthma and eczema.  No matter how clean a home is, dust mites cannot be totally eliminated.

Pets (Cats and Dogs)

More than 45 million Americans have allergies to cats or dogs’ dander (dead skin), fur, saliva, and even their urine. Symptoms include skin rash, allergic rhinitis or asthma. Allergens can travel on pet owner’s clothes, making such allergies hard to avoid.

Mold

Allergies to mold spores can cause coughing, itchy eyes and nose, nasal congestion and asthma.  In the U.S. 15 million people have mold allergies, and over 45 million buildings report unhealthy levels of mold.

Food, Medicine & Other

Millions of Americans have allergies to nuts, antibiotics, latex, bee’s venom and other allergens.  Currently, we are unable to safely treat such patients without an in-person visit, which is why we do not test or treat such allergies.  Instead we focus only on indoor, outdoor, mold and pet allergies.

Understand

Allergy is a disease of the immune system.

Your immune system overreacts to harmless allergens, producing IgE antibodies and releasing histamines into blood that can inflame your sinuses, airways, skin or digestive tract.

Some allergy medications (e.g. antihistamines) try to counteract the chemicals produced by your immune system, and thus reduce the symptoms temporarily.

Immunotherapy treatment aims to retrain your immune system by exposing it to small medical-grade allergens over time, so that the body stops overreacting altogether.

Desensitize

Immunotherapy can reduce your allergy over time.

Immunotherapy is a prescription treatment that exposes you to small controlled doses of medical grade allergen, with the goal of retraining your immune system not to have allergies.

You should understand
what’s causing your allergies.

  • Allergy testing by high quality labs and ordered by trained allergists can help you understand what’s causing your symptoms.
  • Perhaps you have a sinus infection caused by an allergy that can be treated at the source with immunotherapy?
  • Is it a cat allergy or pollen that the cat brings from the outside?
  • Does your skin itch more in the winter because it lacks moisture or due to dust mites?
  • Testing is necessary to properly diagnose you and customize an effective long-term treatment plan.

FAQ

1.

Can I develop new allergies?

Chevron
Yes, you can develop new allergies to anything at any time. Our Curex clinicians often see patients who have developed new allergies or asthma as adults.
2.

What happens if I don’t treat allergies?

Chevron
Not treating your allergies can result in more than just troublesome symptoms such as coughing, nasal congestion, sneezing and itchy nose and eyes. It can cause sleep disturbance, impairment of school or work performance as well as affect the quality of your day-to-day activities.
3.

Why are allergies becoming more common?

Chevron
This is unclear and likely multiple factors have an influence. Some theories include the hygiene hypothesis where it’s thought that too many cleaners and sanitizers (“improved hygiene”) limit our exposure to certain organisms including bacteria. As a result of this lack of exposure, our immune systems instead start to react to normal day-to-day exposures like pollens and pets.
4.

What is the best Over-the-Counter medication?

Chevron
For the most part, this depends on the particular patient and many factors. However, most allergists will agree that the most effective allergy medications for nasal symptoms are nasal steroid sprays. These cover all major allergy symptoms such as itching, drainage and sneezing, but what sets them apart is their ability to relieve nasal congestion better than oral antihistamines. However, they do not work well immediately and often take about 1-2 weeks to exert their maximal effect.
