What Are Environmental Allergies?
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, more than a quarter of the U.S. population suffers from allergies. With environmental allergies, a person's body responds to some harmless substances as if they are dangerous. Common allergies include dust mites, pollen, dog hair, bees, nuts, and more. For most people, the body's immune system is able to recognize these allergens; however, for those with overactive immune systems, the body may excessively react, causing inflammatory reactions, such as sneezing, watery eyes, asthma, hives, rashes, and more. Symptoms of environmental allergies include congestion, itchy nose, fatigue, headache, watery eyes, and sneezing. People with allergies can find relief at Crystal Canyon ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery. Our providers may recommend medication or immunotherapy to fight allergies. So don’t let allergies hold you back another day, and contact our Flagstaff, AZ practice to schedule comprehensive testing for environmental allergies today.
What Can I Expect from Environmental Allergy Treatment?
Crystal Canyon ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery’s expert team focuses on prevention in treating allergies. During your appointment, we will conduct a thorough physical exam, review your medical history, and ask detailed questions about your lifestyle and any symptoms to diagnose your allergies. We may also perform specific tests to determine the environmental factor causing the allergy, such as:
Skin test: Exposure to small amounts of proteins found in specific allergens with pricks may reveal an allergic reaction if the skin’s surface becomes irritated, red, or swollen with bumps.
Blood test: A blood sample will detect allergen-causing antibodies in the bloodstream.
Our practitioner also will create a customized allergy treatment plan based on your allergens and symptoms. Treatment generally involves:
Allergen avoidance: Steering away from certain environmental factors is the easiest way to avoid complications and reduce exposure to the substances that trigger allergy attacks.
Medication: Prescription and over-the-counter medications, including nasal sprays and eye drops, can reduce your immune system reaction and relieve symptoms.
Immunotherapy: Although allergy shots contain tiny amounts of allergens to stimulate the immune system, this treatment does not cause full-blown allergic reactions.
Adults and children with severe, life-threatening allergies may require emergency epinephrine shots during a reaction, followed by emergency medical care.
Crystal Canyon ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery Reviews
I am very pleased to be a patient in Dr. Fratianni’s practice. My chronic ear/nasal issues were negatively affecting my quality of life and I needed expert advice. Dr. Fratianni took the time to advise me on my test results. She incorporated my results into a comprehensive medical plan, one that supports better health and wellness. Dr. Fratianni has given me the confidence to become my own advocate/ partner in my health care — for this I am thankful. Now, my quality of life has improved and I can enjoy my active lifestyle again. Thank you Crystal Canyon ENT
Went for hearing loss,1 ear. CCENT made an appintment for next day, took me on time, measured hearing in a sound-proof room, cleaned my ears, found an infection in the ear & nose, wrote a prescription & protocol, all in 30min, no rush, just no wasted time. Hearing’s now better than ever. Thanks!
I started my journey with Crystal Canyon in 2022. Tey are very informative and surgery was scheduled quickly. Well the day came for surgery and found out I had COVID. Surgery was cancelled. I got rescheduled for May of 2023, (this was due to my schedule not Crystal Canyons). When surgery came it went very well, I could not be happier. The results and outcome are life changing. Communication with the office is good. Doctor is attentive and takes time to explain things when you have questions. I definitely recommend and have recommended Crystal Canyon to other friends.
A truly great practice! Everyone there is super knowledgeable and seems to genuinely care about everyone they interact with - both in person and over the phone. I have had surgery through this clinic and have always had exceptional care.
Doctors are very knowledgeable. Great staff. Dr Fratianni is great.
