Understanding your allergies and asthma issues is the first step toward relief. That’s one of the main reasons why National Allergy & Asthma Awareness Month was created. It’s important to understand your symptoms, triggers, and treatment options … and an allergy test performed by Dr. Brauer is the best way to accomplish that! But first, let’s dive into how Dr. Brauer can help you with your asthma or allergy issues:
When your body encounters an allergen that triggers an immune system response, the airways in your lungs become inflamed and the muscles surrounding your airways start to tighten. This causes asthmatic symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, chest pain, and more. It’s vital to help your body realize that the allergen is not a threat; thus, the use of an inhaler!
There are several types of asthma that could be causing your discomfort such as childhood, exercise-induced, and occupational asthma. Dr. Brauer can determine what is causing your asthma symptoms or attacks to surface and discuss treatment options so you can live a safe, healthy life.
Kentucky is known as the Bluegrass state, but our neighbors suffer with more allergies than just Kentucky Bluegrass! Dr. Brauer has helped thousands of people find relief from the following allergies:
- Drug allergies
- Eye & nasal allergies
- Food allergies & intolerances
- Immunological deficiencies
- Skin allergies
- Stinging insect allergies
Depending on the specific allergy, Dr. Brauer will create a treatment plan for you to help you find relief. Very successful treatment options include medications or immunotherapy (also known as allergy shots). Immunotherapy teaches your body that the allergen is not a threat; thus, altering the immune system so you can be free of this allergy.
