Brooklyn Pediatrician Elaborate on Five Things You Should Know About the Upcoming Allergy Season

Posted: Updated:

In response to an article published by HTRnews.com, Dr. Michael Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics, a Brooklyn pediatric care center, says that the impending allergy season shouldn’t be taken lightly

BROOKLYN, NY / myprgenie.com / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2014 / Dr. Michael Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics, a Brooklyn pediatric care center, responds to an article published on March 11 by HTRnews.com, which provides five helpful tips for the allergy season.

According to an article published on March 11th by HTRnews titled “Five things you should know about spring allergies,” people have become more prone to suffering from allergic reactions to pollen and mold with the number of cases increasing year by year. Dr. Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics, a Brooklyn pediatric care center, recommends taking preventive measures well before the allergy season actually hits.

Dr. Gabriel urges parents to be aware of the following five main facts about spring allergies.

1) Allergies are on the rise. “Every year, more adults and children are diagnosed with allergies,” he says. “That lingering cold or sniffles you’ve had may be allergies and you should see your local board-certified allergist for testing.”

2) It does matter when you medicate. “If you are someone who suffers from spring allergies, you should begin to medicate approximately two weeks before you typically see allergies appear,” says Gabriel.

3) There is no cure. “Unfortunately, there is no current cure for allergies. However, allergy shots do provide relief from bothersome symptoms,” Gabriel explains. “What’s even better is that these immunotherapies are individually-tailored to each patient’s allergies.”

4) Severe symptoms can occur. “Many associate itchy eyes, sneezing and runny noses with allergies however they can go much deeper than that,” warns Gabriel. “Asthma can actually count as an allergy symptom which can be life-threatening.”

5) When in doubt, seek medical attention. “If you find yourself suffering from allergic symptoms for more than two weeks, it is recommended you see an allergist,” says Gabriel. “Don’t just sign off your symptoms as the common cold or a respiratory infection. Allergies are serious and should be considered as so.”

Dr. Michael Gabriel urges parents and children to take these facts seriously. “Staying healthy goes beyond getting checked out once conditions worsen; being healthy takes dedication and proactive involvement to prevent life threatening allergy attacks.”
