Allergies affect about
one out of every five Americans.

If you are suffering from allergies or hay fever, we can help. The Allergy Center at Albany ENT & Allergy Services is dedicated to helping people find relief from their allergy symptoms.

Below are three steps to finding relief from your allergy symptoms.

Review Your Allergy Symptoms with an Allergy Specialist

Allergy symptoms differ depending on the type of allergy. Common symptoms include itchy or watery eyes, rashes, eczema, congestion, coughing, sneezing, and other cold-like symptoms. Allergies can even trigger asthma attacks. Recognizing the symptoms can ensure you get the right treatment.


Skin Prick Allergy Testing

Skin prick allergy testing will help identify the things you are allergic to, such as trees, pollen, grasses, mold, pets, dust and more. The test is typically painless and often covered by insurance.


Allergy Treatment Plan: Medications, Allergy Shots & Allergy Drops

Once we’ve identified the cause of your symptoms, we can recommend a treatment plan. Some allergy symptoms can be managed with medication, such as antihistamines, decongestants, nasal sprays, eye drops, corticosteroids and mast cell inhibitors. None offer a cure, but all can help alleviate your symptoms.

For patients seeking long-term relief, immunotherapy is an effective way to eliminate allergy symptoms. There are two types of immunotherapy treatments, allergy shots and allergy drops. Both work by introducing small amounts of allergen to your body and gradually build up doses until you develop an immunity.
