When allergies strike, it can result in a runny nose, coughing, sneezing, headaches, and a range of other symptoms. At The Barranco Clinic serving Lake Wales, Winter Haven, Haines City, Sebring, and Clermont, we help determine the source of your allergies and provide solutions that help you to reclaim your quality of life.

Allergy Evaluation and Treatment 

Allergy testing is an important first step in your treatment process. When the allergen is coming from your environment, it’s essential to track down where it’s coming from so that chronic sneezing, coughing, and headaches can be halted. Treatment options include the following:

Allergy Testing

Your skin is injected with a tiny amount of the suspected compound. Your reaction is then measured and recorded.

Allergy Shots

With this approach, the suspected allergen is injected into the skin weekly to help the patient develop a tolerance. The dosage is gradually increased, and shots are performed less frequently.

What Are Environmental Allergies?

Many people have seasonal allergies caused by their immune systems reacting to trees, leaves, grass, pollen, weeds, and flowers. Others suffer allergies to pets such as cats and dogs. Mold and dust in one’s home can also be considered allergens. 

The body reacts to these substances through a variety of symptoms, including itchy eyes, congestion, a runny nose, and sneezing. These symptoms may be short-lived and last only a few hours, while others can experience chronic allergies that are unending.

While environmental allergies may be considered harmless, over time, they can significantly wear on one’s patience. Our team of highly experienced, caring doctors is standing by to help assess your issues and create a solution-oriented treatment plan that will help clear your breathing and make it possible for you to thrive.
