asthmaMay is National Asthma & Allergy Awareness Month for good reason: it is peak allergy and asthma season. Most allergy-sufferers are hiding indoors until the pollen dissipates, and asthma-sufferers are reaching for their inhaler more often than not. But, it doesn’t have to be this way!

Let the Bluegrass Family Allergy team help you find relief.

It’s important to know what treatment options are available for both allergy and asthma issues. By being proactive, you can fight this pollen season with as much force as possible. Dr. Brauer and the team believe that education is key to healthy and safe living.

What allergy treatments are available?

Fifty million out of roughly 318 million Americans suffer from allergies. That equates to roughly one out of six people having an allergy or intolerance to a certain substance! Unfortunately, more and more people suffer from allergies every year. But, we’re here to help.

For allergy-sufferers, there are multiple treatments available. Depending on the severity of your allergy and other factors, Dr. Brauer can provide allergy tablets, medication, and immunotherapy.

It’s important to remember that while over-the-counter medication is readily available, knowing how much and how often to take is vital. Dr. Brauer will help you decide which medication is best for your symptoms and how to prevent side effects.

What asthma treatments are available?

Unfortunately, no cure for asthma has been found yet. However, that doesn’t mean relief is nonexistent! If you suffer from asthma triggered by allergens, immunotherapy can offer relief from asthmatic symptoms.

When it is caused by other factors, Dr. Brauer can prescribe medication to maintain control of symptoms. In both cases, Dr. Brauer will educate you and give you tools that will help you live a healthy and safe life.
