Allergic Rhinitis Hay Fever
San Tan Allergy & Asthma
Allergic rhinitis (AR), also known as hay fever (or just “allergies”), is a very common problem in Arizona. It has been estimated that up to 50% of all Americans have at least one allergy.
Allergies are caused by your immune system reacting against proteins in the air (like pollens or animal dander) that normally should not cause an immune response.

Overview of Allergy Symptoms
Allergies can affect people differently. Some people may experience mild symptoms of itchy eyes or nose, sneezing or cold symptoms and may only have symptoms at certain times of the year. Others may have more severe symptoms and may have a difficult time concentrating or functioning due to the severity of their symptoms. Fortunately, there are many options that can help patients control and potentially even cure their allergies. Phoenix allergy relief is possible!
Common Triggers For Allergies
In the Phoenix, Arizona area, the most common triggers for allergies include grass pollen, certain tree pollens (such as olive, ash, mulberry), weed pollens (like sagebrush, ragweed, creosote and others), and molds (which commonly grows outdoors in grass and on other vegetation). Cats and dogs are also a common indoor trigger for symptoms.

Personalized Allergic Rhinitis Treatment Plans
The staff and providers at San Tan Allergy & Asthma can identify whether or not you may have allergies as the cause of your symptoms and will help to formulate a treatment plan that best suits your needs. An allergy test called skin testing may be recommended to help identify the cause of your symptoms. Medications can be very effective for many patients who suffer from AR and avoidance of known allergens may be recommended when possible for patients to obtain allergy relief.
Allergen immunotherapy (also known as allergy shots) is one of the most effective long-term solutions to controlling allergic rhinitis. It is effective in 80-85% of patients and involves the injection of concentrated amounts of allergen proteins into the body to teach the immune system to stop reacting against those things. Although allergy shots do involve a significant commitment, it is the only proven method to reduce or cure allergies long term.
