Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)


About Allergic Rhinitis

Hay fever is a bit of a misnomer because it isn’t caused by hay itself, nor does it produce a fever. Hay fever, more appropriately allergic rhinitis, is caused by uncontrolled swelling of the inside of the nose due to an allergen. The most common allergens are trees, grass, weeds, mold spores, cat, dog and dust mites.

    Allergic Rhinitis


Upon identifying your specific allergens, appropriate control of your environment is a very important starting point. For relief, Allergy & Asthma Specialists of North Florida can prescribe a range of allergy treatments including nasal corticosteroids, antihistamines, decongestants or leukotriene modifiers. In those patients who do not respond to medications, prefer not to take medications or are limited by the cost of allergy medications then allergy shots (immunotherapy) may be an excellent treatment option.

Our experienced allergists will customize your personal allergy treatment based on your medical history and your lifestyle. If you need relief from your allergy symptoms, schedule an appointment at one of Allergy & Asthma Specialists of North Florida’s four Jacksonville-area locations near St Johns Bluff, in Orange Park, Mandarin, and near the Northside on Dunn Ave.
