What Are Allergies?

Allergies are physical reactions to foreign substances that your body’s immune system has mistakenly identified as harmful. An allergic reaction occurs when your body secretes antibodies that initiate an inflammatory response in an effort to clear the offending substance that you have inhaled, ingested, or touched. Common allergy triggers include pollen, mold spores, pet dander, insect stings, and various medications and foods.

Some types of allergies, often triggered by food or insect stings, can cause a severe reaction called anaphylaxis. This is a life-threatening condition for which you should seek immediate treatment at the emergency room. Anaphylaxis symptoms can include loss of consciousness, severe shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, a drop in blood pressure, a weak pulse, and extreme nausea and vomiting. If you or a loved one is experiencing anaphylaxis or is having trouble breathing, contact 911 immediately.

Respiratory Allergies

Respiratory allergies can encompass seasonal and pet-related allergies. Symptoms may include:

  • Sneezing
  • Itching of the nose or eyes
  • Rash
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Water, red, or swollen eyes

If you are experiencing respiratory allergies, there is an array of treatment options available, including OTC antihistamines and nasal corticosteroids.

Food Allergies

A food allergy occurs when your immune system identifies a food that doesn’t usually cause a reaction in most people as harmful. Many patients suffer from some form of food allergy. While food allergies may not seem like a big deal to some, they can progress into serious side effects, including anaphylaxis.

Symptoms of a food allergy may include:

  • Tingling of the mouth
  • Swelling of face, throat, tongue, or lips
  • Hives

If you are aware of your food allergy, you should consciously avoid that food. Also, carrying a portable dose of epinephrine prescribed by your doctor may be useful in case of a serious reaction.

For non-life-threatening allergies, you can feel confident turning to Springfield Urgent Care for testing and treatment that can help you start feeling better fast. And, if you’re concerned that your symptoms may actually be a sign that you’ve contracted the flu or COVID-19, we can provide on-site testing that will lead to an accurate diagnosis so you can make informed decisions to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Contact Springfield Urgent Care today if you have questions, or simply stop by our walk-in clinic in Clarkston.

“I don’t usually like going to any urgent care because of my bad experience BUT I love this Location. The staffs and the doctor are very nice and very friendly. One of the female nurses name Carrie. She is my favorite because she was nice and gentle when she was care for me. She also did my first Covid on my first visit there months ago. Thank You!!”

“I rarely ever leave ratings of places, and don't think I've ever commented on one, if I have I don't remember doing so but this place is AMAZING!! I was in and out so fast. ALL of the staff was so nice and so efficient. The rooms are clean and the waiting room is so nice and clean and cute. They even have a coffee machine with options if hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee and even chicken broth which I thought was just so thoughtful!! I won't go anywhere else if I need an urgent care center!!”
