Allergy Management


In the south, people are often plagued by allergic rhinitis, or more commonly known as “seasonal allergies.” Allergies occur when your body’s defense system mistakes harmless allergens like pollen, grass or dust for harmful bacteria, and releases histamine into your blood stream. Histamine is the cause of symptoms most commonly associated with allergies, including:

  • Sneezing
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Itchy throat
  • Stuffy nose
  • Fatigue
  • Recurrent ear infections
  • Recurrent sinus infections
  • Throat clearing
  • Post nasal drip
  • Hives
  • Nasal Polyps
  • Asthma

Allergies can eventually lead to nasal blockage and recurrent sinus infections, so effective allergy management is essential for finding a long-term solution if you are a chronic sinus and nasal congestion sufferer. Regularly taking an antihistamine like Claritin™, Benadryl™, Allegra™, Clarinex™ or Zyrtec™ for your allergies does NOT address the underlying cause of your allergies, so you do not gain any long-term benefit.

Metairie Sinus & Snoring puts you in control of your allergies by helping you identify what triggers your allergies and then using scientifically proven methods to reduce your recurring allergy symptoms. To help manage your allergies, our doctors always begin with comprehensive allergy screening and testing.
