One of the most common medical conditions in the United States that affects 30% of the population is nasal allergies and allergic rhinitis. Approximately 50 million Americans are afflicted with the symptoms relating to severe allergies. Seeking the help of an experienced Marina Del Rey allergy doctor may be your only chance at finding relief and breathing easy again. Allergic rhinitis is a hyperactivity of the immune system that causes inflammation of the nasal and sinus cavities known colloquially as “hay fever.” Exposure to normal air particulates such as dust, mold, pollen, and animal dander act as “allergens” in patients with allergic rhinitis, triggering the release of inflammatory chemicals within the nose and sinuses.

There are multiple symptoms related to severe allergies that can greatly interfere with your daily life and overall wellbeing. Allergy to certain pollens may cause only seasonal exacerbations of symptoms as is common in “hay fever.” However, allergy to allergens like mold or dust may lead to chronic symptoms that exist all year long, which is known as perennial allergy. Initial treatment from a Marina Del Rey allergy doctor, such as Dr. Wu, includes oral antihistamines, nasal steroid sprays, nasal antihistamine sprays, and saline rinses. Failure of initial medical therapy may require allergy testing and allergy shots by an allergist or surgery depending on he clinical circumstances.
