Cough Treatment In Miami, Florida
We’ve all experienced having a cough before – mainly due to the flu or a cold. Coughs, in these cases, come on strong during an illness in the first few days; then, they steadily taper down as we start feeling better.
However, what to do in the case of a cough that seems to be chronic and dry? It may be a sign of an allergy cough, or when the coughing is related to allergies, that may be more pronounced depending on the environment or season.
An allergy cough is most often a symptom of an allergic reaction. Allergies like hay fever can often cause congestion, sneezing, itchy skin, nose, and eyes, as well as allergic coughs.
More precisely, allergy coughs are caused by a response to a compound that the immune system identifies as harmful (as an allergen), and this triggers an allergic reaction. In some cases, conditions like asthma may also cause allergy coughs, especially when accompanied by other symptoms such as chest tightness, wheezing, and shortness of breath. An allergy cough doctor or a certified allergist can help diagnose the problem and find appropriate treatment methods to find relief from allergy coughs.
Why is Proper Diagnosis Important?
When suspecting an allergy cough, a doctor specializing in allergies can establish an accurate diagnosis and rule out other problems like:
- Nasal and sinus infections
- Esophageal conditions and issues with the stomach
- Post-viral infections
- Lower airway bacterial infections
- Inhaled a foreign body
- Cough caused by irritants like tobacco smoke
Allergy Cough Treatment
After visiting a certified allergist to assess your symptoms and to perform the necessary allergy tests, like skin prick tests or blood tests, they can also help you with presenting an individualized cough treatment plan.
Allergy doctors at the Miami Allergy and Immunology Center will address the root causes of the allergy cough and prescribe options that will give relief after an allergic response. Still, we will aim to focus significantly on patient education that makes allergy cough management simpler.
Education starts with identifying and avoiding the allergens that trigger the response. Also, timing your everyday activities, watching the weather, and cleaning your environment can go a long way in helping you with allergy coughs.
Don’t forget, in proper allergy management; patient education takes center stage. Knowing what your triggers are and avoiding them is key to living a happy and fulfilling life. At the Miami Allergy and Immunology Center, we aim to devise management plans that address the patient’s individual needs, preferences, and lifestyle.
