Hay Fever Treatment

If you are sniffling, foggy, or stuffy, you may be experiencing hay fever. Allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, affects about 40 million Americans every year. This condition is very common in Ogden and northern Utah with our abundant tree varieties, weeds, and different types of grasses. There are two different causes of hay fever:

  • Seasonal allergic rhinitis caused by pollen
  • Perennial allergic rhinitis caused by dust mites and mold

Most Ogden Clinic patients with hay fever experience both types. The symptoms can be severe enough to interfere with your everyday life and may need to be professionally treated by a specialist. People with hay fever experience:

  • Nasal and eye itch
  • Sneezing
  • Nasal drip and discharge
  • Stuffy nose

If this sounds like you, don’t leave your symptoms untreated. Over-the-counter antihistamines can provide relief to people with occasional hay fever, however, those experiencing severe discomfort should contact an Ogden Clinic immunology specialist for hay fever treatment.

When allergic rhinitis symptoms aren’t improving from antihistamines, an ENT specialist at Ogden Clinic can explore prescription-strength hay fever treatment such as nasal steroid medication, nasal decongestant, or Immunotherapy.
