If you have recently discovered that you are indeed allergic to something, you might be wondering what happens next: What kind of allergy medications should I be taking? How do I avoid the things that I am allergic to? Can allergies be cured? For answers to these and many other questions you may have, we are here for you!
Individualized Allergy Treatment Plans
As your highly trained and experienced Atlanta allergist, Dr. Chacko will create an allergy treatment plan to take care of your individual needs. Allergy treatment plans generally consist of any combination of the following options:
- Environmental – simply avoiding your allergens, if at all possible
- Medicinal – prescription or over-the-counter tablets, nasal sprays, eye drops, etc.
- Immunotherapeutic – more commonly known as allergy shots
- Auto-injectors – i.e., the EpiPen, for allergic reactions that range from extreme to life-threatening
Questions About Your Allergy and Treatment?
When you come in for your initial assessment, we will be happy to address any of your questions or concerns to ensure that you are well-informed of everything relating to your particular allergy. Patient education is one of our top priorities! Although your allergist has the necessary training and knowledge to recommend the appropriate treatment for your unique case, an ability to take care of yourself can make all the difference.
Please note that while an allergy treatment plan cannot cure an allergy, it can treat and control your symptoms. We can help relieve your sneezing, itchy and/or watery eyes, skin rashes or hives, and many more!
