Dr. Karina Gobin, a Board Certified Allergist and Immunologist, joins Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Karen Gentile to talk about environmental allergies. In this episode she discusses the difference between indoor and outdoor allergies and when to expect each of these to strike. The presenting symptoms of environmental allergies are reviewed and here's a hint...it's itchy! We review when allergy testing should be considered and how allergy testing is performed. Dr. Gobin recommends over the counter antihistamine to trial as a first line treatment for seasonal allergies as well as other allergy control options.
