You may be one of the millions of Canadians that suffer from allergies, and if so, you know how frustrating they can be. You may doubt yourself at times, wondering, “Am I dealing with seasonal allergies or a cold?” You may have also reached the point where you are looking for allergy prescriptions, allergy treatments, anything to feel better!
Allergic disorders consist of a spectrum of conditions, ranging from local skin reactions and rashes such as eczema, pulmonary disorders like seasonal rhinitis and asthma, to systemic conditions such as hives and life-threatening anaphylaxis!
Allergic reactions can be caused by a local irritant such as a chemical, inhaled allergens such as pollen, ragweed and dust, or a food item you may ingest.
It’s important to know that anyone can develop an allergy to anything, at any time!
Perhaps the most well-known allergy symptoms are seasonal allergies, which typically occur during the change of seasons, particularly at the onset of spring and fall. While all of us usually look forward to putting away our sweaters, snow shovels and snow boots and welcoming the warm weather, for millions of Canadians the onset of the spring comes with a price—seasonal allergies.
Many patients come to us asking for signs that they have seasonal allergies, or whether the scratchy or sore throat they are feeling is brought on by spring allergies or a cold. Sometimes, seasonal allergy and cold symptoms can feel similar, so it’s important to consult a doctor for a sore throat, an itchy or stuffy nose or cough or sneezing. They may want to know whether they are suffering from hay fever, if they’re allergic to flower pollen or the cold, or even how to avoid allergies in spring.
Beyond these questions, you may be wondering whether you have food allergies, are looking for an online skin assessment, or are simply looking for prescriptions and allergy treatments that can allow you to feel better and get back to enjoying your life.
