· Allergy Testing And Treatment
Allergies occur when certain substances, e.g., pollen, latex, nuts, etc. trigger an immune response in your body despite being harmless. Such substances are known as allergens. Unfortunately, the immune response is usually worse than any harm the allergen might cause. While some allergic reactions cause mild discomfort, others are potentially dangerous/ life-threatening.
Some common allergy symptoms are; sneezing, coughing, runny nose, headaches, nasal drip, watery, itchy, red, or swollen eyes and frequent sinus infections. If you experience the above symptoms but are yet to have an allergy diagnosis, AASC offers a full range of allergy testing. Once your allergen is identified, we will work together to find the best way to manage and treat your allergy.
· Asthma Treatment
Asthma is a chronic illness with the following symptoms;
- Shortness of breath.
- Chest tightness.
- Shortness of breath at night
- Coughing at night, during, or after exercise.
Asthma can sometimes be categorized as:
- Allergic asthma- Triggered by specific allergens, e.g., pollen or mold.
- Seasonal asthma- Triggered by pollen allergens in the air during their peak seasons.
- Exercise-induced asthma
- Nocturnal asthma- The above asthma symptoms worsen at night.
- Non-allergic asthma- Triggered by air irritants, e.g., smoke, fresh paint, deodorants
Asthma requires specialized treatment to keep it in check. Whatever your asthma may be, we offer a custom treatment plan to ensure it has minimal effects on the quality of your life.
· Sinusitis treatment
Sinusitis occurs due to inflammation of your sinuses. Since it is commonly caused by either an allergic reaction or a respiratory infection, AASC offers sinusitis diagnostic and treatment services. Treating the underlying cause, whether it’s an allergic reaction or asthma, typically causes the inflammation to disappear.
