Seasonal Allergies

Sometimes called hay fever allergic rhinitis, seasonal allergies develop when our immune system overreacts to the environment, especially during spring, summer or fall when certain plants pollinate. If you find yourself sneezing and coughing during specific times of the year, you may have seasonal allergies.

Allergy Immunotherapy

Medication can help your body’s defences deal with pollen differently if you suffer from severe chronic allergies. Two of the most common immunotherapy treatments available include allergy shots and under-the tongue tablets available by prescription. Your provider will help you design a personalized treatment plan against seasonal allergies so that you can continue treatment at home, without the need to come to the clinic weekly or receiving regular painful injections.
It is common for people who are experiencing seasonal allergies to develop an itchy mouth, scratchy throat or swelling in their mouth, lips, tongue, or throat after eating raw fruits, vegetables, or certain tree nuts. If this has happened to you, it could be a sign of an oral allergy syndrome, an allergic response by the immune system. Birch, grass, and ragweed pollens may also trigger the symptoms of oral allergy syndrome. Try cooking, peeling, or canning the fruit or vegetable, which may prevent the rise of those symptoms.
