3 Ways a Walk-In Clinic Can Help Your Allergies

No matter what’s causing them, allergies are a nuisance. Runny noses, itchy, watery eyes, uncontrollable sneezing-this is just a recipe for misery. Unfortunately, allergies affect most of us at some point in our lives and oftentimes, the spring season intensifies them. Allergies can make it seem impossible to carry out normal tasks without feeling exhausted! It’s no wonder that patients seek out treatment to ease their symptoms quickly and get on with their day.

Visiting a walk-in clinic can help you find allergy relief quickly. There’s no need to prolong your appointment; just stop in, be seen, and get treated. Here are three ways a walk-in clinic can keep your sneezes to a minimum.

1. Figure Out the Cause
Allergies can be complex when it comes to figuring out the root of what’s causing them. When you want fast relief, it’s all too easy to take an over-the-counter allergy reliever to stop your sneezing. While these medications can work in the short-term, they aren’t always the answer to solve your problems. If you are only masking your symptoms, you’ll never figure out what’s causing them. It’s possible you could have allergies induced by something more than the changing seasons, such as asthma-induced allergies or pet-related allergies. A walk-in clinic can perform allergy tests to figure out what’s causing your symptoms, which then allows us to recommend the best treatment available for you!

2. Treat the Symptoms (Not Mask Them)
If you are experiencing allergies caused by asthma, for example, then your treatment needs to target both asthma and allergies. Our PrimeCare clinics can not only figure out the cause of your allergies, but also recommend treatment and prescribe medicine as necessary. There is sometimes uncertainty around what walk-in clinics can do regarding your treatment; we offer many of the same services as a standard doctor’s office. If you need to visit, you can be sure you will get the help you need. Whether you need nasal spray, an allergy shot, or treatment for allergies caused by poison ivy, we can provide it.

3. Advice on Allergy Management
When you visit PrimeCare in Searcy, we don’t want you to walk away without some tips on how to manage your allergies in the future. Otherwise, your problems will recur and you’ll be back at square one. Our doctors can recommend medications, but also general lifestyle tips to help you prevent or reduce your symptoms from intensifying. Removing allergy triggers, cleaning to remove dust and mites, keeping pets off the furniture-all of these things can help you manage your allergies to make your life more enjoyable!

You don’t have to let allergies decrease the quality of your life, and it doesn’t have to be a big ordeal to find relief. With a quick visit to our PrimeCare walk-in clinic, our doctors can figure out the cause of your allergies as well as a solution to help you manage them.
