A brief on summer allergies:
During the long, sunny summer days, more people head outside to garden, entertain in the backyard, and go camping, hiking, and biking. Mold and ragweed pollen, two common allergens, are also active this time of year. Summer is a high allergy season for some people because we spend more time outside. It typically occurs between June and September, with symptoms peaking in June and July.

Preventing summer allergies
Avoiding allergy triggers is the best way to prevent allergy symptoms. If you experience any of the above symptoms for longer than two weeks, then allergies may be the cause, and we recommend getting an allergy test. Skin testing is the most reliable form of allergy testing. Our Allergy Specialists will use a combination of family history and the skin testing results to diagnose an allergy.
ENT Specialists and Allergists usually workhand-in-hand to treat conditions where allergies are causing problems in the ears, nose, sinuses and throat regions. Aster Clinics has one of best ENT clinics in Dubai.
Summer allergies can be dangerous at times, but with proper knowledge, preparation, and treatment, they don’t have to ruin your summer fun. Always wear a sunscreen during the summer season.
