Are you prone to sneezing fits at seemingly random moments? Do sniffles, watery eyes, runny noses, sinus headaches and/or other annoyances seem to come and go, very literally, with the weather? If that’s so, then it’s entirely possible that you suffer from any of a range of common allergies relating to pollens, plants, dust mites, pet dander, and even food. Fortunately, once the cause of your allergies is identified, then allergy relief is near.
However, numerous other ear nose and throat issues can mimic allergy symptoms and the range of known allergens is enormous. For example, many people who experience what is actually sinusitis may think they only have an allergy, when the problem is entirely different. Getting the most accurate information about your allergy is an important part of our work here at ENT & Allergy Associates of Los Angeles.
Before you can treat an allergy, it’s important to know the source of the allergy – and it’s even more important to be sure you’re actually suffering from an allergy and not some other problem. That’s why Dr. Shervin Aminpour and Dr. Marc Cohen of ENT & Allergy Associates of Los Angeles place great emphasis on getting the most accurate and complete information from the range of currently available allergy tests. During these tests, your ENT doctor will examine your ears, nose and throat and find the proper way to manage the conditions with medical therapy or surgical procedures.
One of the most common allergies affecting the ear, nose and throat that are treated at ENT & Allergy Associate of Los Angeles is hay fever. This nasal allergy occurs when the lining of the nose becomes irritated and the sufferer sneezes and experiences post-nasal drip and congestion. The individual may also have itchy, watery eyes or even a feeling of fullness in the ears.
