Preparing For Seasonal Allergies with Internal Medicine & Pediatric Clinic in New Albany, Mississippi

Signs of high blood pressure

Spring is here! It's a time to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather and longer days. However, for some, it is time for allergy flare-ups.

Suppose you're one of those who experience seasonal allergies; you know how much it impacts your life. The symptoms range from a runny nose to trouble breathing. And sometimes you wish magic would work for you! However, this is something you'll deal with every year until you find the right treatment method.

But that doesn't mean there aren't things you can do to prepare yourself for seasonal allergies. You can get them under control but first, let's look at their causes. 

Causes of Seasonal Allergies

The top causes of seasonal allergies include the following:

1. Pollen

Especially in spring and summer, these fine powders made up of tiny grains contain plant reproductive cells. They blow in the wind and move hundreds of miles from their source. Most pollen comes from trees, weeds, and grasses.

2. Mold Spores

These are microscopic fungi that grow in damp areas with poor ventilation, like basements or bathrooms where humidity levels are high due to window sills. These become airborne when disturbed by moving furniture or opening windows for fresh air. 

3. Pet Dander

Dander is the fine hair that attaches to animal fur and skin cells. Pets shed dander constantly. Therefore, people allergic to pets can have symptoms when near a pet or around who has been in contact with one recently. 

To reduce exposure to pet dander:

  • Wash bedding frequently in hot water - dry on high heat
  • Vacuum floors and furniture often using a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter
  • Wash pet bedding often - put down plastic sheets during heavy shedding periods

How to Deal with Seasonal Allergies

Some of the most effective IMPC services health tips for putting allergies under control are:

1. Adult Wellness Exams

A wellness exam is a great way to make sure you're on track with your health and address any concerns you may have. IM&PC experts will give you a full check-up and ensure any issues that could be affecting your allergies are under control.

2. Well Child Exams & Immunizations

Seasonal allergies can make it difficult for children to breathe, which is why immunizations are so vital for kids. An allergist can help keep your child safe by diagnosing and treating any allergies, as well as administering vaccines.

3. Internal Medicine

Suppose your seasonal allergies are making you tired or foggy all the time; an internal medicine doctor can help with that. They treat conditions like asthma, chronic sinus infections, and even heartburn by prescribing medications that will clear up the root cause of your symptoms.

4. Pediatrics
