Allergy Consults

What causes allergies?

Allergies happen when your body thinks that harmless substances, like pet dander or peanuts, are actually pathogens that could make you sick. When this happens, your body prompts an immune response - which causes the symptoms like itchy eyes, itchy or runny nose, and scratchy throat that make allergic reactions troublesome.

There is a wide range of things that can cause an allergy as well as a wide range of reactions you can get as a result. You may get hives from a drug allergy, an itchy tongue from a food allergy, sneezing from a pet allergy, or a cough from a mold allergy. Allergy triggers can come in many forms such as airborne particles like pollen or dust, or as a result of a sting. Allergic reactions are one of the most common conditions allergists treat. These usually occur in the eyes, nose, throat, sinuses, lungs, and skin. Another common condition is hay fever (allergic rhinitis), which refers to allergic reactions that cause runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, and itchy throat. These reactions are usually caused by an allergen like pollen, dust, or mold. While many conditions like hay fever are the result of seasonal allergies and occur during certain times of the year, perennial allergies occur year-round. Asthma, for example, occurs when the airways in your lungs swell and inflame, which causes excess mucus and makes it hard to breathe. Allergens and irritants can also cause skin reactions like eczema (dermatitis) and hives.

What is the best treatment for allergies?

Because allergies live on a wide spectrum, the best treatment for you depends on your particular allergy and the severity of your allergic response. Your allergist can help you determine what allergies you may have, and develop a plan catered to what is right for you. Some treatments options include:

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) allergy medicines such as antihistamines, decongestants, nasal sprays, eye drops, or a combination of OTC medications

  • Immunotherapy (allergy shots)

  • Acupuncture

  • Avoiding triggers

Knowing what you're allergic to is half the battle. In order to determine your triggers, your allergist may recommend skin or blood tests. Once identified, your allergist can help you find ways to best avoid the allergens and can offer treatment options specific to your individual case. Book a virtual allergist consult through Sesame and receive quality care by a licensed professional at a fraction of the cost. Know your price. On your schedule. Yep, it's really that simple.

What helps relieve allergies fast?

Different types of allergies call for different types of treatment. Hay fever treatment may involve allergy medication such as corticosteroids or eye drops, but you might not treat insect stings with the same medications. Depending on the severity of the insect sting allergy, you may need to keep epinephrine with you at all times. Connect with a doctor on Sesame to learn more about what triggers your allergies and how to treat them.

How do I avoid allergies?

Your allergy will dictate how you avoid it. For example, if you have a food allergy your doctor might recommend that you read food labels before eating. Perhaps you're sneezing because of an indoor allergy like mold or dust mites. In that case, your doctor might suggest the use of a dehumidifier or air purifier. Seasonal allergies might lead you to watching the pollen counts. The solution is closely tied to the type and severity of allergy you experience.

What are the benefits of allergy treatment?

Allergy treatments can help you manage or eliminate symptoms related to allergies. Allergies occur because of the over-production of antibodies by your immune system. An allergist can help you determine what allergens cause your immune system to overreact and, with proper treatment, get back to living the life you want to live without the fuss of allergies.

Is there a way to cure allergies?

The short answer is no. But your symptoms related to the allergy are treatable. Immunology treatments such as sublingual immunotherapy can help decrease or eliminate your symptoms. Whether it's a food allergy or seasonal allergies, Sesame clears your way to care. You don't need insurance to save on quality care.

If you are experiencing severe allergic reactions including mouth swelling, vomiting, hives, dizziness, or difficulty breath, you should dial 911. These type of side effects are often (but not always) cause by insect stings, medication, or food allergies. Anaphylaxis can be a life-threatening emergency, so don't wait if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.

What are some of the most common seasonal allergies?

Spring is in the air - and so are the allergies. Common seasonal allergies include:

Weed pollen: Ragweed, pigweed, tumbleweed, and sagebrush are major hayfever producers. Hayfever from weed pollen can often last from spring till fall.

Flower pollen: Sunflowers, daisies, and chamomile are some common flowers that cause allergies.

Tree pollen: Many trees have pollen that irritate some people including pine, beech, elm, hickory, walnut, sycamore, and pecan.

Grass: Grass pollinates in spring in most regions of the US.

Mold and mildew: Fungi that can spread in moist areas, often in humid places. During wetter months, mold counts rise, often causing more cases of allergy related symptoms.

Animal dander: It isn't the hair of a dog that causes the allergy. That is a misnomer. It's actually a protein in a dog's saliva and urine that can stick to fur and dander causing the allergy to occur. That is why furless dogs are less likely to cause irritation because they don't shed the saliva ridden particles as much as a dog with fur. Animal dander is more common during winter months.

When is allergy season?

Allergy season is dependent what allergy you have and where you live. Common allergy seasons include spring and fall for high pollen counts, while mold allergies occur when it's moist. This could mean winter if you live in the midwest, or from winter to spring if you live in the Pacific Northwest. It all depends on your allergy and your location.

You don't have to wait for fall, winter or spring allergies to arrive. Book a virtual or in-person visit with an allergist without the fuss of an insurance company. You get fair, upfront prices for every service with Sesame. See who you want, when you want. No mark-ups or restrictions. Yep, it's really that simple.

What are the symptoms of seasonal allergies?

Seasonal allergy symptoms can include allergic rhinitis (sneezing, runny nose, itchy nose, sinus pressure or pain, nasal congestion), and swollen or red itchy eyes. If your symptoms become unmanageable, consider seeing a doctor.

How can you treat seasonal allergies?

Your allergist might recommend the use of over-the-counter medications including antihistamines, decongestants, eye drops, and nasal sprays depending on your allergy triggers.

For more severe allergies your doctor may recommend allergy immunotherapy (allergy shots, tablets, or drops), which can train your body to become less sensitive to the allergen. Before you begin treatment, your doctor may start with a blood test or skin test to determine which specific allergen you have, and then create a treatment plan specific to you that usually lasts for 3 to 6 months. A secondary maintenance phase can last around 3 to 5 years or sometimes longer.
