When should I see an allergist?
Many people will confuse allergies with a common sickness (like a cold or flu). But, if you find yourself getting “sick” often with a bad cough or head congestion – then it may be time to schedule a visit to see an allergist. Often in some people, the symptoms of asthma or allergies will develop gradually over an extended period of time, while others may experience asthma and allergies that are very predominate.
People who suffer from allergies may become very used to having frequent allergy symptoms that may include sneezing, nasal congestion, or wheezing while breathing. With the help and guidance from an allergist, these symptoms can most times be prevented or controlled with the patient feeling a major improvement in their quality of life.
Being able to effectively and efficiently control asthma and allergy symptoms does happen to require diligent planning, skill and patience from both the allergist and patient. The allergist, will utilize his/her specialized training and will develop a treatment plan for the patient’s unique condition.
