Common Allergy Conditions We Treat
Also known as hay fever, allergic rhinitis is the general term used to describe allergic reactions that take place in the nose. When this condition persists year-round, it could be caused by exposure to indoor molds, pet dander and dust mites. Symptoms of this condition can include sneezing, runny nose, congestion and itching of the eyes.
Asthma attacks occur when airway muscle spasms block the airflow to your lungs or the lining of your bronchial tubes becomes inflamed. Most often characterized by labored or restricted breathing, asthma attacks can range from mild discomfort to life-threatening attacks. Some common symptoms of asthma include coughing, wheezing and a tight feeling in your chest.
Skin Allergies & Contact Dermatitis
Skin conditions such as contact dermatitis, eczema and hives are often caused by external allergens and other irritants. Some common causes of skin irritation can include medicines, animals, bug bites, insect stings and harsh chemicals. We offer allergy injections for immediate allergy relief at our clinic in Corpus Christi. Schedule your next allergy shot today!
