Here in Texas, especially in Dallas and surrounding cities such as Southlake, Fort Worth, Colleyville, and Keller, we have brutal allergy seasons. Just as the weather starts to warm up in the spring, it seems like pollen bursts into the air wherever you go, immediately packing your sinuses and giving you a terrible headache. Then it seems to happen all over again in the autumn, as the weather cools off and the leaves start to fall.
What can you do to avoid feeling miserable when your allergies start acting up? Well, you could take an antihistamine, but those medications always tend to make you feel drowsy, and they really only treat the symptoms (barely) without ever getting to the cause.
What if you could pinpoint exactly the allergens that you’re reacting to? What if there was an easy way to get allergy testing and treatment to give you relief without the drowsiness or any of the negative side effects? Well, actually there is. Whether you’re suffering from seasonal allergies or you believe that you may have developed a food allergy, with a simple prick test, you can find out exactly what is making you feel so ill.
All that sounds great, but you still may be wondering if it’s actually necessary for your health. Let’s go over a few of the ways that your health can significantly improve with allergy testing and treatment in Texas.
Avoidance Isn’t Always Possible
If you have a food allergy, most people will tell you to avoid that particular food. Likewise, if you’re allergic to pollen, you’ll be advised to stay inside and avoid exposure to any allergens. There’s a problem with this avoidance strategy, though – sometimes you just can’t avoid all of the allergens that affect you.
Even if you don’t spend your weekends mowing the lawn or playing catch in the yard, you still have to walk outside to get to your car in the mornings to go to work. You still have to have some exposure to the allergens that are triggering your reactions, so what can you do? You can identify them and get them treated so that you can be outside comfortably and enjoy quality time with your family without feeling sick for the rest of the day.
Living a Healthier Lifestyle
Speaking of spending quality time with your family, being cooped up inside whenever your allergies act up isn’t the best way to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. If you get testing and treatment for your allergies, you can go for bike rides, go running, and spend time enjoying other healthy activities outside instead of sitting inside whenever your allergies are preventing you from going outside.
Improve Your Skin
Last but not least, allergy testing and treatment in Texas can improve your skin and help you regain your bright, clear complexion. If you react by breaking out in a rash, hives, or blisters whenever you come in contact with an allergen, those marks can become permanent scars. If you treat your allergies, then you won’t have those break-outs, and your skin will look and feel healthier and softer.
