Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
“Approximately 18% of our population suffers from allergies, making it one of the most common chronic illnesses,” Western Washington Medical Group says in their recently released article addressing the need for those suffering from allergies to seek medical attention.
“Billions of dollars are spent on allergy-related health care each year in the United States,” they continue. “Many people have accepted allergies as a mere way of life for themselves, rather than seeking the appropriate treatment.”
Fortunately, there are medical specialists that are making advancements every year in the field of otolaryngology, a specialty devoted to helping patients overcome allergies.
According to the article, providers are better able than ever before to help their patients diminish allergic symptoms and responses, and in some cases, overcome the allergy altogether.

People that suffer from allergies such as animal dander, dust mites, various pollens, mold, and foods will find that seeing a medical professional for their allergies will help them to greatly reduce the discomfort associated with a chronic allergic response.
“Sometimes individuals are unaware that they are suffering an allergic response,” Western Washington Medical Group points out.
They advise that those with persistent conditions, such as frequent sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, runny nose, ongoing congestion of the throat, sinuses or respiratory system, skin rashes, or pain or flatulence following meals should seek the medical expertise of an otolaryngologist or ENT specialist.
“It is important that people realize that suffering from such symptoms should not be a ‘way of life’ or a normal condition. Rather, patients must realize that they have the right to live life fully and healthy, without any hindrance to their well-being. Otolaryngologists and ENT’s are fully equipped to help such individuals achieve this,” says Western Washington Medical Group.
