As the spring allergy season approaches, women and men in Colorado are searching for allergy treatments to relieve their symptoms. Dr. Michael R. Menachof has noticed a surge at his practice in patients looking for allergy management and treatment.

After the winter months come to an end and spring weather begins, allergies tend to flare up and cause distress and inconvenience. Dr. Michael R. Menachof (, a Colorado allergy specialist, has noticed an increase in women and men at his practice over the past few months who want to manage or treat their allergies.

"I typically see an increase in patients at this time of year," says Dr. Menachof. "Plants begin producing pollen. This process happens even earlier if the temperature has been fluctuating in the winter."

Women and men come to Dr. Menachof for a variety of reasons. As a Colorado allergy specialist, Dr. Menachof offers multiple types of treatments for allergies, including allergy drops, allergy shots, and medications. Particularly when the season changes to spring, pollen can spark allergies, leading to discomfort and irritation. Dr. Menachof can help cure or manage these symptoms, depending on what the patient desires.

"Some patients with less severe allergies may only be looking for a way to manage the symptoms, in which case allergy medicines and nasal sprays can help," explains Dr. Menachof. "But for those who suffer from more severe allergies, other alternatives such as allergy drops or shots can be employed to ease symptoms and provide long-term allergy relief. We can use different types of testing to test for allergies, including skin and blood tests."

Dr. Menachof recommends testing for allergies before the spring season as a preventative measure. Today's advancement of allergy treatments can help either stop symptoms before they occur or alleviate them. Allergy treatment in Colorado makes it possible for patients to enjoy the spring weather without the uncomfortable symptoms associated with allergies.

"The spring months are so beautiful and refreshing," says Dr. Menachof. "They are especially enjoyable when patients can focus on being outdoors without having to worry about feeling uncomfortable or sick. With all of our treatment options, there is every reason to get outside and take advantage of the upcoming season."

He graduated in the top 5% of his class and was awarded placement in the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society.
