Dec. 12, 2018 – In Florida, every season is allergy season. This winter, however, many Floridians may finally find allergy relief. According to experienced ENT doctor, Dr. Napoleon G. Bequer of Sinus Solutions of South Florida, allergy testing can help those whose allergies don’t respond to standard allergy medications.
Not only are all individuals allergic to different things, but each individuals’ sinuses react in their own unique way to those allergens. Allergy testing provides doctors with a comprehensive outline of what allergies are causing their patients to struggle — the first step toward treating allergies.
“Allergy symptoms can be debilitating,” states Dr. Bequer. “Allergy testing helps take some of the mystery out of treatment. We can help patients more efficiently by getting to the root of what causes each patient’s allergies and where treatment will be most helpful.”
If your test results demonstrate that more extensive treatment is necessary, Dr. Bequer can recommend a variety of sinus surgeries and procedures, including balloon sinuplasty, a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in-office in less than 20 minutes.
In the meantime, Dr. Bequer suggests using an air filter in your home, monitoring your home’s humidity, and cleaning allergen-collecting areas (like rugs, bedding, and curtains) to further help manage allergies.
