Seasonal and Perennial Allergic Rhinitis in Buffalo, NY

Read more
Patients who suffer from allergies have an immune system that reacts to usually harmless substances in the environment. These substances, called allergens, can include trees, grass, weeds, mold, animal dander, insect stings and dust. 
 
Patients can experience symptoms such as itchy eyes and nose, runny nose, post nasal drip, coughing and congestion when exposed to an allergen. Testing can be done in the office to determine what allergens may be causing your symptoms. Once identified, a treatment plan can be made to control your symptoms with lifestyle changes, medications and/or immunotherapy (allergy shots). 

Immunotherapy (allergy shots) slowly introduces your allergens into your body and allows your body to get used to them. Eventually this reduces your symptoms.

Do you have a child that is sneezing a lot? Are they developing rashes or hives? After eating certain foods are they getting stomachaches or feeling nauseous? 

These could be signs of allergies. If you suspect that your child has allergies, call the pediatric allergist at Buffalo Amherst Allergy Associates. Children may develop allergies at any age, but the sooner you work with an allergist to diagnose and control the problem, the better. Allergies can cause children to miss school, as they may be feeling ill. To reduce the number of days off, working on ways to control allergies is key.

Around 6 million children in the United States suffer from a form of food allergy including peanuts, eggs, and milk products. Other common allergies in children include tress, plants, insect bites, pet fur, dust mites, perfumes, and more.

After testing your child to determine what they are allergic to, our allergists will set your child up on a treatment plan to control allergies and asthma including allergy immunotherapy.
