Allergies occur when the body’s immune response overreacts to a substance that is harmless to most people. The substance that triggers this immune response is called an allergen. Allergy symptoms can include runny nose, itchy eyes, itchy skin, congestion, cough, sneezing, wheezing, shortness of breath, rashes, and in the case of food allergies, nausea, and vomiting.
If you are suffering from some of those symptoms, a full medical history should be acquired at your appointment. Dr. Hartman can then determine the next steps in diagnosing your symptoms and devising a treatment plan.
