The holidays are here, and we can see that something special is in the air when people come into our office. We love seeing happy smiles and so much cheer during the holiday season. From our family here at Riviera Allergy to yours, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving, festive holiday season, and a safe New Year.
During the holidays we see patients who are dealing with allergies, and it is affecting their ability to enjoy the winter. Despite the fact that many people associate allergies with warmer temperatures, those who live in Southern California are certainly prone to seasonal and perennial allergy symptoms during the winter as well.
In order to make the most out of your holidays, you may need to see an allergy doctor. If allergies are something that have been controlling your life, it’s time to make a change. Here are some things that you can expect from allergy testing.
What is an Allergy Test?
One reason that it’s great to see an allergy doctor during the Holidays is because of the types of foods to which you’ll be exposed. When you eat at home, you can control what it is that you put into your body. However, at holiday parties, you never know what ingredients are used in the food.
We also highly recommend that students visit an allergy center during their winter break. An allergy center can provide asthma testing, and treatments of asthmatic symptoms. By getting early allergy and asthma care, you can avoid serious issues down the road.
When it comes to airborne allergies, you deserve the best seasonal allergy medicine. RAMC has a variety of remedies for allergies. For example, certain allergy cures may be provided in the form of inhalers, nasal sprays, tablets, injections or simply by avoidance of the identified allergen.
If you notice that your asthma & allergy symptoms coincide, your allergy specialist can advise you how to control both. Finding the right allergy treatment may be a challenge, but it’s certainly something that can be done at an asthma and allergy center.
Q & A Hot Sheet
Q: Does my grass pollen allergy need to be considered in the winter?
A: Yes. There may not be as much grass/pollen flying around in the winter as in the summer, but in southern California, grass pollens are in the air 24-7, all year round, with peaks during the summer, and at 3 o’clock AM.
Q: Are my nasal allergies affecting my sleep?
A: Yes. Nasal allergies can affect your sleep. Your nose might be congested at night due to acid reflux or sinus infection. To determine the cause of your sleep disruption visit an allergy specialist.
