When your nasal allergies have been accurately identified through allergy testing, control of symptoms can be achieved in a variety of allergy treatments. The physicians of the Allergy Center of Decatur ENT will partner with you to discuss allergy treatment options and create a plan to achieve relief from your allergy symptoms.
Avoiding exposure to your identified triggers such as dog and cat dander, dust mite, mold, and pollen allergies help to control your allergy symptoms. Other irritants and pollutants including cigarette or wood smoke, car exhaust, aerosol sprays, and perfume can worsen symptoms. Our team will work with you to adjust your environment to avoid allergens and cross-reactions from other irritants, pollutants, and foods.
The experts at the Allergy Center of Decatur ENT can work with you to find the best allergy treatment including over-the-counter (OTC) medications or prescribe other medications specific to your allergy symptoms. Allergy medications may include pills, gels, or nasal sprays of antihistamines, steroids, saline, and other medications that can relive nasal congestion and sinus symptoms caused by nasal allergies.
In some cases, surgery may need to accompany allergy treatment to remove underlying problems such as polyps or other blockages in the nasal passages that worsen allergy symptoms. Correcting these issues with surgery does not cure allergies but can help relieve sinus pressure, pain, and headaches.

Allergy shots are injections of solutions containing tiny amounts of identified allergens based on the results of your allergy test. The amount of allergen in the solution is increased slightly with each shots to boost tolerance and reduce symptoms. With regular therapy, allergy shots can make your body less sensitive to allergens.
