Chronic allergies are a widespread condition that affects millions of people worldwide. An allergy occurs when the immune system overreacts to a foreign substance that is typically harmless to most people. Some of the most common chronic allergies include hay fever (allergic rhinitis), eczema, drug allergies, and food allergies.
The symptoms of chronic allergies are often persistent and can be difficult to manage. Some people may experience severe or mild allergy symptoms, including:
Sinus Congestion - Blockage or stuffiness of the nasal passages.
Coughing - Allergic coughing is a reaction to allergens such as pollen, dust mites, or pet dander.
Persistent Sneezing - A reflex action that occurs when the nasal passages are irritated by allergens.
Itching - A common symptom of allergies that can affect the skin, eyes, nose, and throat.
Facial Congestion - Feeling of pressure, fullness, or tightness in the face, usually around the sinuses or nasal passages.
Urticaria - Also known as hives, this is a skin condition characterized by the sudden appearance of itchy, red, or white welts or bumps on the skin.
Chronic allergies can also lead to life-threatening symptoms, such as asthma attacks and anaphylaxis.
Allergies are typically caused by your body's immune system response to external stimuli, with many being seasonal or temporary based on the surrounding environment. The most common of these stimuli include:
Cockroach and Rat Droppings
Individuals may notice they have allergies if they consistently experience symptoms like sneezing, runny or congested nose, itchy or watery eyes, coughing, or skin rashes, particularly in response to known allergens seasonally or in specific circumstances. Keeping a detailed journal of symptoms and their triggers, as well as tracking when symptoms occur and how long they last, can provide valuable information for a healthcare provider to make an accurate diagnosis during a medical evaluation. Additionally, the medical provider can run tests that allow you to get more specific information.
The treatment for chronic allergies and allergy medications depends on the severity of symptoms and your medical history. Some commonly prescribed medications for chronic and seasonal allergies include:
Singulair - A leukotriene receptor antagonist that helps to reduce inflammation and swelling in the airways, making it easier to breathe.
Azelastine - An antihistamine that helps to reduce the symptoms of allergies, such as sneezing, itching, and runny nose.
Prednisone pack - A corticosteroid that is prescribed for severe allergy symptoms, such as difficulty breathing or swelling of the face and throat.
Cetirizine - An antihistamine that can be used to relieve allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy or watery eyes.
Flonase - A corticosteroid nasal spray that helps to reduce inflammation in the nasal passages.
It is important to consult with a healthcare provider to diagnose your allergies and determine the best way to treat your allergies, as some medications may have negative interactions with others or have potential side effects due to undetected drug allergies.

"Amazing!! Easy and fast! I didn’t have to take my 4 year old into an urgent care where only god knows what germs are there. The doctor sent the script right to my pharmacy within minutes!!!"
"I would give 10 stars if I could! CallonDoc is literally the reason I am recovering instead of suffering as I write this. I was skeptical at first, but I’m not kidding when I tell you I got prescribed my antibiotics and picked it up at the pharmacy within 2 hours. So instead of waiting & paying around 300$...I paid 40$!! I’m very pleased."
Severe chronic allergies can be treated with a combination of medications, including antihistamines, corticosteroids, and immunomodulators.
Yes, there are long-term treatments for allergies. These include allergen immunotherapy, which involves regular exposure to small amounts of an allergen to desensitize the immune system, and ongoing use of medications such as antihistamines, corticosteroids, and immunomodulators to manage symptoms.
It is important to work with a healthcare practitioner to develop a long-term personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs and medical history. Once you know what medication you need, getting prescription refills with CallonDoc becomes easy.
Yes, doctors can prescribe stronger allergy medicine for chronic allergies. For mild to moderate allergies, over-the-counter antihistamines, eye drops, and nasal steroids can be effective. However, for more severe allergies, doctors may prescribe oral or nasal corticosteroids, such as prednisone or fluticasone propionate; immunomodulators, such as cyclosporine or omalizumab; high-dose antihistamines, such as diphenhydramine or hydroxyzine; or emergency epinephrine shots, such as EpiPen or Auvi-Q, for severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis).
Both chronic and seasonal allergies can be caused by common allergens, such as latex; airborne allergens like pollen or mold, which usually cause asthmatic symptoms; insect stings; pet dander; dust; pollen; and drugs.
Unfortunately, chronic allergies are not curable. The only way to effectively manage allergies is by treating and controlling the symptoms. Another way to avoid experiencing allergy symptoms is by gradually identifying and removing potential allergens from your diet and environment.
Untreated allergies can not only be incredibly uncomfortable, but if you are continuously exposed to allergens without getting appropriate treatment, they can actually get worse. That’s why it’s vital to get effective allergy treatment from a medical professional
Allergies, such as hay fever (allergic rhinitis), can cause symptoms that mimic a fever, including a high body temperature, but it's not a true fever. Allergic reactions can lead to increased body heat, chills, and fatigue, which may give the impression of having a fever, but they do not involve an infection that typically causes a fever.
Yes, allergies can cause a sore throat, particularly if the allergen triggers postnasal drip, which can irritate the throat. Other allergy symptoms, such as sneezing and nasal congestion, can also contribute to throat discomfort.
Yes, allergies can cause coughing as one of their symptoms. Allergens, such as pollen, dust mites, or pet dander, can irritate the airways and trigger a cough, especially when they lead to postnasal drip or inflammation in the respiratory tract.
Yes, allergies can make you feel tired and fatigued. The body's immune response to allergens, along with symptoms like congestion, sneezing, and poor sleep quality due to allergies, can contribute to feelings of fatigue and low energy.
Yes, allergies can sometimes trigger headaches, particularly sinus headaches. Allergic reactions can lead to sinus congestion and inflammation, which can result in increased pressure in the sinuses and lead to headaches in some individuals.
