Spring is a beautiful time of year, but seasonal allergy symptoms can make you feel otherwise. Watch to learn how Trey went from avoiding to enjoying the outdoors with skin testing and monthly allergy shots.


“Sneezing over and over and over again, head completely congested, eyes watering. It just becomes a very miserable experience.”

Like millions of Americans, Trey Gregory has seasonal allergies.

“Seasonal allergies are generally allergies to different pollens. Specifically the springtime it’s usually the trees. Sometimes generally the grasses, and full time generally weeds.”

The immune system of an allergy sufferer treats pollen, usually a harmless substance, as if it were a threat. The body’s response? Sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, and a runny nose.

“At the peak of suffering from my seasonal allergies I had to avoid the outdoors pretty much the entire spring.”

Seasonal allergies and colds have similar symptoms, but if your symptoms come on suddenly and occur at the same time every year, chances are you have allergies. To be sure you can get tested by an allergy specialist.

“Skin testing is doing little scratches on your either on your arm on your back, and if you’re allergic you’ll get red itching and can swell up. You’ll know those results within about 10 or 15 minutes.”

After years of standard treatment with antihistamines, decongestants, and nasal sprays, Trey now finds relief with monthly allergy shots.

“It’s the best thing I ever did to treat my allergies. Easily.”
