"Allergies aren't limited to those who have experienced them since childhood; the onset of symptoms can occur at any age," says Dr. Pritikin. "We are seeing unusually high pollen and mold counts right now and people who have never had problems before are suddenly experiencing allergy symptoms." These symptoms can include nasal congestion, watery drainage from the nose, frequent sneezing, itching of the eyes and throat irritation. Sinus pain and ear pressure may also develop secondary to allergic congestion within the nose.
Dr. Pritikin adds that a simple scratch test can determine allergy triggers. "Once we pinpoint the culprit we can find the appropriate treatments to offer relief from symptoms," says Dr. Pritikin.
