Allergy Testing and Immunology

types-of-allergiesWhat are the symptoms of spring allergies?

The symptoms of spring allergies include:
Runny nose
Watery eyes
Sneezing
Coughing
Itchy eyes and nose
Dark circles under the eyes

Airborne allergens also can trigger asthma, a condition in which the airways narrow, making breathing difficult and leading to coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.

Our services include Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy
