Residents of Garland, Wylie, Plano, Dallas, and Rowlett, Texas who suffer from hay fever can seek relief with Dr. Rahimi at his office in Richardson, TX. He can offer treatment and advice to manage hay fever symptoms.
Hay fever is also called allergic rhinitis, and is an allergic response to indoor or outdoor allergens. Substances like pollen, dust mites, and pet dander are common triggers for the cold-like signs and symptoms of hay fever. Most people with hay fever experience a runny nose, itchy eyes, congestion, sneezing, and sinus pressure. It is different from a cold in that all of the symptoms can present at once, symptoms will last for as long as the person is exposed to the allergen, and it is not caused by a virus. Hay fever does tend to be seasonal with symptoms getting worse at different times of the year. In the early spring, tree pollen is a common cause, while grass pollen is more prevalent in late spring and summer, and ragweed pollen peaks in the autumn.
While symptoms can often be treated at home with over-the-counter antihistamines, a doctor should be consulted if the OTC treatments do not provide relief or if they cause any limiting side effects. If a patient has another condition that can be exacerbated by hay fever, like nasal polyps, asthma or chronic sinus infections, a doctor should be consulted.
