Evaluation and Management
Allergy testing is necessary to identify if environmental allergies are playing a role and the extent of allergies to allow us to best guide treatment options. Modifying our indoor environment to minimize exposure to allergens is important in many cases. Also strategies to reduce outdoor pollen exposure and preventing these from coming indoors are discussed. Once avoidance measures are optimized then the options include improving symptoms with appropriate medications and/or allergy immunotherapy (ie allergy injections, drops) which builds up tolerance to allergens to prevent symptoms.
