Allergy (Airway) Services at ENT Super Care Clinic

Airway allergy, also known as allergic asthma or allergic rhinitis, is a type of allergy that affects the airways. It occurs when the immune system overreacts to a particular substance in the air, such as pollen, dust mites, or pet dander, causing inflammation and narrowing of the airways.

Symptoms of airway allergy include wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and congestion. These symptoms can be triggered by exposure to the allergen, exercise, cold air, or other irritants.

Treatment for airway allergy includes avoiding triggers, taking medications such as antihistamines, nasal corticosteroids, and bronchodilators to relieve symptoms, and in some cases, immunotherapy (allergy shots) to desensitize the immune system to the allergen.

It’s important to work with a healthcare provider to develop a treatment plan and manage symptoms to prevent exacerbations and improve quality of life.
