Allergy Treatment

Allergy Treatment

You’re not alone if you suffer from allergy symptoms. Allergies are the sixth-leading cause of chronic illness in the United States, affecting more than 50 million Americans. Allergies affect as many as 30% of adults and 40% of children in the United States.  At Bailey Health Solutions in St. Augustine we offer relief through allergy skin testing and immunotherapy treatment.  This treatment is COVERED by MOST INSURANCES.

Allergy Signs

 

  • Itchy eyes and nose
  • Congestion
  • Joint pain and inflammation
  • Sneezing
  • Allergic asthma
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Hives
  • Fatigue or Shortness of breath

Testing

Finding out what you’re allergic to through skin allergy testing is the first step to treatment.  A skin prick test uses diluted amounts of common or suspected allergens and introduces your skin (on the arm or back) to the substance. A positive reaction will usually take up to 20 minutes. If you are allergic, you will develop a raised bump, or a wheal, at the test location on your skin.  Once testing is completed, we apply topical Benadryl gel to alleviate these symptoms which usually completely resolve within 2 to 4 hours.

While the skin prick test sounds scary this test is relatively painless and no blood is drawn. Allergy skin testing is considered very accurate.

Life Changing Results

Allergy symptoms can be debilitating at times and can also significantly affect our daily activities and lives. Many people will use over-the-counter medications to help alleviate these symptoms. However, these medications are a temporary fix, rather than treating the allergy condition and preventing the progression of allergy symptoms. Here, at Bailey Health Solutions, we have an allergy treatment plan that can alleviate symptoms and overtime diminish the symptoms altogether.

Contact our allergy treatment providers at Bailey Health Solutions by giving our office a call to set up a free allergy consultation. MOST INSURANCES COVER THIS TREATMENT. Our providers can determine the best treatment plan for you, to get you back outside, symptom-free.
