Allergies Care at MyCare Express Clinic

Allergy is the most common

chronic health problem in the world.

Common Types of Allergies

There are over-the-counter remedies you can try, as well as some at-home DIY remedies. Over-the-counter remedies include antihistamines, which are available in many different forms such as eye drops, nasal sprays and pills. For example, you could take Claritin, an antihistamine, or Flonase, a nasal steroid spray.

Allergy Prevention & Treatment

If you suffer from allergies, then you know all too well about the itchy eyes, runny nose, constant sneezing, coughing and fatigue that may come along with this diagnosis. Typically, your immune system will protect your body from foreign substances such as allergens, and most people do not experience any difficulties when allergens enter their body. However, in a person who suffers from allergies, their bodies release histamines. Histamines are a chemical which our immune systems naturally create, and are released when our body is needing help getting rid of a foreign substance, such as an allergy.

What is the difference in allergy vs. cold symptoms?

Someone suffering from allergies may notice the symptoms lasting a much longer duration than a typical cold. A cold may last up to two weeks, whereas allergies can last anywhere from days to months. Typically, someone experiencing a cold may have a gradual onset symptoms over a few days, but allergies can begin immediately and without warning. One of the biggest symptoms that can help you determine if you are suffering from allergies or a cold is the color of your mucus from your runny nose. Usually the mucus found in those with a cold is of a yellow color while allergy mucus is clear. Also, with a cold you may experience a fever that would not be present with allergies unless you are developing related complications.

In order to diagnose allergies, the medical practitioners at MyCare Express Clinic may ask you a series of questions regarding your symptoms and lifestyle habits in an attempt to narrow down the source. Additional testing may be required.
