Allergy Treatment at Lake Charles Memorial
What Is an Allergy?
We talk about allergies, but not everyone knows exactly what they are.
Let's break it down for you! An allergy is actually a condition that
you may have due to a genetic predisposition and that results in certain
foods or environmental factors affecting your immune system in an abnormal way.
Hay fever is a form of an allergic reaction. Keep in mind, however, that
it is not the only type of allergic reaction a person can experience.
Hay fever symptoms often include annoying and painful reactions such as
sore throats, congestion, repeated sneezing, red and leaky eyes, itching
in the back of the throat / mouth, and so on.
You might have another type of allergic reaction, however. For example,
you could experience ear infections, dizziness or fatigue, asthma, or
chronic coughing. You may see rashes on your skin or experience swelling
in your throat or mouth. Headaches can be an allergic symptom, as well
as stomach pain or GI issues. Talk to your doctor about the symptoms you
