I'm getting really bad allergies here in Austin, TX and it doesn't feel nearly the same as my annual allergies. Any suggestions?

Allergies can worsen: Allergies can worsen over time; someone who moves to a new place may not start out reacting to the local allergens but develop allergies to them over time. I agree with dr. Cunnar - oral antihistamines first, then, if needed, see your doctor and add a nasal steroid spray next. If necessary, singulair (montelukast) can be added as well. Each works by a different route, so they're complementary. Feel better! ...Read more

My husbands been asked to travel to Austin TX for a work convention.  Should we be concerned with the Ebola outbreak in TX?

No: the only people who have been diagnosed with Ebola are two nurses that worked with a gentlemen who came to the U.S. With Ebola. There is no outbreak of Ebola in the U.S. There has been one death from Ebola and that case is from another country. You should be worried about the flu and make sure he gets his flu shot before traveling. 52,000 people died last year in the US from the flu! ...Read more

I have had sharp and very painful pain in my elbow the past couple of days, but it came out of no where and it only hurts in certain positions. Austin?

Inflammation: Such pain, in the absence of a history of trauma, is usually caused by tendonitis or epicondylitis(tennis elbow). Repetitive to an fro motions are the usual cause of the inflammation which is treated with cold or hot applications, rest and,if you can take them, antiinflammatories like ibuprofen or naproxen.

Is sublingual immunotherapy as effective as injections? I'm targeting fatigue that allergies cause. Living in Austin/TX it's almost year-round.

Is sublingual immunotherapy as effective as injections?  I'm targeting fatigue that allergies cause.  Living in Austin/TX it's almost year-round.

Overall shots better: When comparing sublingual vs subcutaneous immunotherapy, the latter turns out to be more effective overall. The fact that sublingual IT often causes oral itching and requires daily dosing leads to a very high drop-out rate. In addition, the allergens available for sublingual are quite limited- Dust mite may soon be approved but molds are likely many years away. ...Read more
