Now that spring’s here, once again, it means seasonal allergies are back. 30 million Americans are affected by spring allergies, which is primarily aggravated by the allergen, pollen. When the weather warms up, plants, flowers, grass – among a number of other organisms – release pollen into the air. This causes people to suffer from the following symptoms:
- Tearing, or Watery Eyes
- Frequent Sneezing or Coughing
- Runny Nose
For many, especially children, this time of the year can be terrible, especially if these allergies are undiagnosed. Therefore, the best course of action for relieving your allergies is visiting the doctor’s office. Yet, most doctors are busy and booked for weeks in advance, whether they’re pediatricians or primary care physicians. This makes AFC Urgent Care Beverly the go-to destination for walk-in allergy diagnosis and treatment.
