AdobeStock_123655925_small.jpgWe should start talking about allergy season. Yes, it's still cold outside (for Georgia) and the grass is still mostly brown, but preparing yourself and your home for allergy season now can help you manage the severity of your allergy symptoms once everything is in full bloom. Here are three things you should do now to get ready for Spring Allergy Season...

Get Tested Now

In order to determine the best course of treatment for a patient, sometimes Allergy Testing is necessary. Ashford Clinic provides arm-based environmental allergy testing that is quick, painless, and effective. Based on the results of your allergy test, additional treatment may be required. Skin allergy tests introduce a small amount of different allergens to your skin to guage how your body reacts to each one.  Allergy testing is quick, usually lasting around 20 minutes, and provides reliable results. These tests are not painful, and the affected area is cleaned after the test is complete to remove any allergens from the your skin.

Start Treatment ASAP

We offer Allergy Drops to patients as a safe and practical means treat environmental allergies. Allergy drops are a simple, effective way to help your body build a tolerance to the substances it is allergic to. Regular, consistent dosage of the allergy drops is a safe way to alleviate your body's reaction, and over time, you will see your allergies improve.

Manage the Pollen

Shoes, jackets, and other outerwear can carry a lot of pollen, so leaving them at the door can help prevent pollen from entering your home. It can also help keep your home cleaner overall. Regular cleaning, especially of the most commonly used floors and surafces in your home, is also extremely helpful in keeping the pollen and other allergy triggers out.
