Addressing your allergy symptoms and finding relief

Endless sneezing, itchy eyes, itchy throat – for many of us, spring is no picnic! It’s the start of allergy season and all the accompanying symptoms. Even though allergies are a chronic condition, it’s worth knowing that you can also visit your urgent care in Spring Hill or Brooksville, wherever is closer to you, should you have an unexpectedly bad reaction or if you’re not getting relief from over-the-counter solutions. What is causing your misery? We look at two facets of the allergy problem.


Pollen-induced allergies

Living in the South in spring is as much work as living in the North in winter – every day, you have to clean off your car from mounds of that lovely yellow dust. If you’re lucky, its presence doesn’t make your nose go crazy.


If you’re not lucky, it’s because your body recognizes pollen as an intruder – something dangerous that should be attacked. It does this by releasing histamines, which cause those ever-familiar symptoms of runny nose and itchy eyes. Although antihistamines are usually effective, sometimes the over-the-counter version isn’t strong enough.


If you are taking the recommended dosage and you’re not seeing relief, pop into LifeGuard Urgent Care Brooksville and let us help. We can help you find a different solution, like a nasal spray, and also write prescriptions for stronger medicine, if you need it.


Allergy-induced asthma

Especially if you have unmanaged allergies, you may be at risk of developing allergy-induced asthma. Usually allergy symptoms stay in the head – runny nose or congestion and itchy eyes – but sometimes, they move south to your chest, leading to asthma symptoms. This condition is characterized by wheezing, chest tightness, and trouble breathing.


If you experiencing any of these symptoms and you’re also having allergy problems, go to your Spring Hill urgent care facility and find relief. Our physicians will examine your lungs and airways and find a solution which works for you.
