One way to treat allergies is to avoid the source of allergens, but sometimes that isn’t possible. Ear, Nose and Throat doctors, called Otolaryngologists, can perform a series of tests to determine the causes of allergies and develop a plan to manage them.
Medical management includes counseling in environmental control as well as the use of a number of medications including antihistamines, decongestants, and steroids. The only long term treatment available for inhalant allergy is the administration of injections by a Tucson ENT that build up protective antibodies to specific allergens (pollens, molds, animal dander, etc.).
