Environmental allergies can cause patients to experience a runny nose, sneezing, headaches, and a number of other symptoms. At Texas ENT Specialists, we provide testing to help determine the cause of your allergy and to provide treatment. 

Allergy Evaluation and Treatment 

The first step in allergy treatment is proper testing to determine the source of the allergy. With environmental allergies, it is even more important to find the cause of the allergies because it’s something in your everyday environment. Our evaluation and treatment options include:

Allergy Testing

This test involves injecting a small amount of the suspected allergen beneath the skin. The test allows your provider to see what you are allergic to, and to gauge the reaction to see the degree of your allergy.

Asensa Drops

Asensa Drops are sub-lingual allergy drops that are placed under the tongue. They are an easy and effective at-home treatment. We will create a custom-mixed vial for you based on your allergies and have it delivered to your door.

Allergy Shots

In this treatment, the allergen is injected beneath the skin multiple times a week to build up an increased tolerance to the allergen. Over time, the dosage in the shot will be increased, and eventually, the shots will be spread out over longer periods of time.

What Are Environmental Allergies?

An allergen is anything that causes your immune system to trigger a reaction and can include pollen, which can be released into the air by trees, grass, and weeds. It can also include pet dander and dust that can live on the surfaces of your home. 

Your immune system can respond by creating symptoms such as congestion, a runny nose, and itchy, watery eyes. Symptoms can also vary in length of time, with some lasting just a few days and others lasting for months. 

Environmental allergies can affect each person differently, so it’s important to find an experienced provider who can create a personalized treatment for you.

Environmental Allergy Symptoms

  • Sneezing 
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Coughing 
  • Headache
  • Runny nose
  • Hives
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing

Who Can Environmental Allergies Affect?

Environmental allergies can occur in both adults and children. They most commonly develop in patients whose parents also have allergies.
