Fighting Nasal Allergies in Fort Worth

Nasal allergies occur when allergens in the air affect the nasal passages due to an overreaction of your immune system. They can be caused by a range of allergens, including pollen, animal dander, mold, feathers and more.

So, how can you win the battle against the runny nose, itchy eyes and nasal congestion? Here are a few ways to treat nasal allergies:


1. Find the underlying cause of your allergy symptoms

Nasal allergy symptoms can be intensified by asthma and eczema. Treating those conditions first will relieve the symptoms of nasal allergies. It’s also important to know when your allergies are worse, is it outside? Inside? Which months? The more information you know and can provide, the easier it will be to treat.

2. Try a home remedy to relieve congestion

If congestion is your main symptom, making a home nasal spray can help a lot. You can also purchase saline nasal sprays over-the-counter at any drug store. It is also beneficial to do sinus rinses, like using a neti pot, during your worst allergy times.

3. Visit Dr. Marc Dean ENT for medications

While some non-OTC medicine can alleviate symptoms, serious allergies may need to be cured by medications such as OTC antihistamines, nasal sprays and decongestants which can be prescribed by Dr. Marc Dean to manage nasal allergies.

4. Allergy shots

Allergy shots aren’t used often. Usually, immunotherapy is only a solution for people who have tried to control nasal allergies through medications.
