Allergies in the Boynton Beach Area

Sunny weather, beautiful
plant life, and warm temperatures are what we appreciate living in Boynton
Beach and South Florida in general. No winter worries, accept for those few
chillier than normal days each year. Although we are fortunate to live this tropical
lifestyle, there is a downside to our climate. Allergies are something that
many Boynton Beach residents  have to
endure throughout the year.

When is Allergy Season in South Florida?

Unlike most allergy
seasons in the US, our warmer weather and long summer cause flowers to bloom
longer and continue producing pollen long after their northern cousins have
stopped. In fact, allergy season in Boynton Beach can last from spring well
into fall!

Symptoms of Late Spring / Early Summer Allergies in
Boynton Beach

The symptoms of allergies
can be pretty uncomfortable regardless of the time of year! If your on the 12th
fairway at Hunters Run or trying to sink a putt at Leisureville golf club and
your eyes are itchy and watering, it makes it difficult to play your ‘A’ game.
Even trying to shop at Publix or in Boynton Beach Mall is challenging when you
are sneezing and constantly patting a runny nose. Look for the following
symptoms if you think you may be having an allergic reaction to a high pollen
count or mold:

Allergy Symptoms May Include…

  • Itchy and watery eyes
  • Scratchy throat
  • Runny nose
  • Fatigue
  • Congestion
  • Trouble Sleeping

At Light ENT in Boynton Beach, we test can help you determine whether or not you have allergies. By
reviewing a history of your symptoms, evaluating your diet, exercise, and your
overall lifestyle habits, one of our ENTs can determine if you are suffering from an allergy.

The best way to confirm you are suffering from allergies is to
have an allergy test.

Allergy shots and immunotherapy are the best options for treatment and are
both available at our Boynton Beach office. At home treatment programs are
obtainable if office hours are not convenient for you.

In many ways, allergies
have similar symptoms to colds and the flu! Symptoms lasting over two weeks may
indicate that allergy problems are occurring.

Allergies are the result
of an allergic reaction to something in the environment. Fortunately, there are
ways to reduce your exposure and help make your spring, summer, and fall a
comfortable experience!
