Most people don’t realize it but we are exposed to thousands of potential allergens each day. In some people, these allergens trigger an excess response and can lead to nasal congestion, post nasal drip and phlegm. In Long Beach, NY we have extra allergens due to the unique micro climate of being so close to the ocean coupled with the great amount of rebuilding of homes and business after the hurricane.
Some of the more common allergens are dust mites, mold, pollen and ragweed. As ear, nose and throat specialists, we can swiftly and accurately diagnose nasal allergies and give you treatment that will work right away. In some cases, avoidance and nasal washes may be all that is required to rid you of your nasal congestion and allergy issues.
Most people are under the impression that they need to see an allergist to diagnose allergies. Ear, nose and throat specialists also care for patients with allergies and in addition to offering the latest in medical management, we can provide surgical options (if needed) as well.
