Dr. Clifford Bassett, Medical Director of Allergy & Asthma Care of New York (http://allergyreliefnyc.com) announced today that his Manhattan allergy practice receives an influx of patients year after year following Valentine’s Day due to unknowing exposure to allergens contained in Valentine’s Day gifts and foods.

Dr. Bassett stated, “The days and weeks following Valentine’s Day my Manhattan allergy practice inevitably sees a substantial increase of new patients who were not aware they had allergies. Flowers, cologne, perfume, scented gifts, massage oils, jewelry, latex condoms, make-up, chocolate with nuts, and dinners with shellfish, are among the most common culprits”.

Dr. Bassett advises about the possibility of allergic reactions that Valentine’s Day and its many related activities may lead to an allergic reaction in sensitive individuals which can ruin their Valentine’s Day and necessitate a visit to the allergist.

Allergic reactions may present with a variety of mild symptoms but can escalate to severe symptoms, and even anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening reaction.
