Every year, do you dread November and December as various cedars come into season? Faced with the thought of another few months of suffering from “cedar fever,” are you contemplating going into hibernation?

You’re not alone. 

Thousands of people across America also suffer from these types of allergies. Thankfully, however, there are effective treatments available – and ones that won’t cost you a fortune or see you heading off to the doctors every time cedar trees start to pollinate. 

Do You Need a Cedar Allergy Treatment? 

A cedar allergy usually presents itself in a very similar way to hay fever. These symptoms can include nasal congestion, burning and/or runny eyes, sneezing fits, breathlessness, an itchy throat, and exhaustion. 

Histamine is the substance that triggers these reactions, and is produced by your body’s abnormal reaction to the inhalation of cedar pollen. As these tiny pollen granules travel through the air, they can also stick to your eyes, causing further irritation. Furthermore, due to the ability of this pollen to travel long distances through the air, you may suffer from symptoms outside the growing range of cedar trees.  

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or think you may have a cedar allergy, you should speak to your doctor or local allergy clinic in Temple as soon as possible. They will be able to advise you about the best possible cedar allergy treatment available, one of which may include allergy drops. 

The Benefits of Cedar Allergy Drops 

Allergy drops (also known as sublingual immunotherapy) can help reduce and even get rid of your cedar allergy symptoms. The treatment works by slowly introducing you to the allergen that causes your body’s adverse reactions. And, over time, this helps your body build up an immunity to the cedar pollen, lessening or eliminating your allergic reactions and making winter months much more bearable. 

By starting this treatment before the allergen is released into the air, it can help you avoid those unwanted symptoms caused by cedar pollen. Furthermore, you can administer these allergy drops up to three times a day for three to five years by simply squirting the solution under your tongue. The amount of time you need to take the drops for them to work effectively will depend on how severe your allergy is, but the majority of patients start to feel the benefits within a few months. 

Cedar fever is incredibly common in Texas, which is why, here at the Temple Allergy and Wellness Clinic, we’ve developed an extensive allergy drops program for our clients. To find out more call us on 254-778-6475 today.
