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!

Personalized Allergic Rhinitis Treatment Plans

Our Phoenix Arizona Asthma and Allergy DoctorsThe 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.

We provide a variety of services all throughout the valley, including allergy relief near Chandler, Gilbert asthma treatment, allergy testing near Mesa, as well as a library of other services for patients near Phoenix, Tempe, Queen Creek and more. Call for an appointment with our Gilbert allergy experts if you would like help finding allergy relief!
