The Spring Season is Just Around the Corner…
Spring is coming. For many that means “stay indoors” and constantly medicate with allergy medications. Our preseasonal allergy drops work well in reducing your allergy symptoms and need for medications allowing you to stay outdoors. You need to start them 2 months before the season so think of them now. Click to learn more about our allergy drop treatment at AAPRI.
It has finally stopped snowing, we hope. The air is crisp and it is beautiful outside. The perfect day for a run, unless you have exercise induced asthma . The cold dry air is especially bothersome because it triggers acute bronchospasm as you start breathing quicker. The keys to prevent this is to pretreat with your short acting beta agonist such as albuterol or xopenex and when possible wear a mask or scarf to humidify the air.
Now with 5 office locations we should be able to accommodate appointments within 24 – 48 hours.
Patients with eczema have a higher risk of Allergic Contact Dermatitis. Symptoms like dry itchy skin or rashes can worsen due to a contact allergy. At AAPRI we can help you pinpoint exactly what substances you are allergic to through Patch Testing. Click to learn more about Patch Testing.
