Allergy & Asthma Treatments
When we know precisely what’s triggering your allergic symptoms, we can create a treatment plan that’s tailored to you. We’ll work closely with you, discussing your options and building a path forward that brings you relief.
- Allergy shots
- Sublingual immunotherapy (tablets that dissolve under the tongue)
- Medication to relieve symptoms (oral allergy medicine, nasal sprays, anti-itch creams)
- Challenge tests to build a tolerance to food or drug allergies
- Controller medications for daily use
- Inhaled medications to open the airway
- Oral medications
- Quick relief or rescue medication for asthma flare-ups
- Biologics (injections or infusions) for severe asthma
It’s estimated that roughly 10 percent of Americans have had an adverse reaction to penicillin at some point. A reaction can range from red, itchy or bumpy skin to a more serious anaphylactic reaction, when the airway begins to swell and close.
An accurate diagnosis – including knowing who’s allergic and who can safely take the medication – can help reduce antibiotic resistance. Also, penicillin is an effective and inexpensive medicine.
The Allergy Clinic at the Medical Group of the Carolinas - Medical Affiliates - North Grove can help you better understand your allergies and give you peace of mind that your diagnosis is accurate.
