Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies are less common during the winter, but it’s possible to experience allergic rhinitis year-round. Different plants emit their respective pollens at different times of year. Depending on your allergy triggers and where you live, you may experience hay fever in more than one season. You may also react to indoor allergens, such as mold or pet dander.

This Affects 40-60 million Americans. Your symptoms can range from nose stuffiness, sneezing, itchy throat along with frequent sinus infections caused by untreated allergic rhinitis. We provide skin testing and blood testing to the most common environmental indoor and outdoor allergens along with many therapeutic interventions that range from avoidance measures, medications and allergy injections. Our goal is to improve quality of life using the least medications possible.

Testing available in the patient corner.

Causes of seasonal allergies


Hay fever happens when your immune system identifies an airborne substance that’s usually harmless as dangerous. It responds to that substance, or allergen, by releasing histamines and other chemicals into your bloodstream. Those chemicals produce the symptoms of an allergic reaction.
