Get relief from your allergy symptoms by scheduling an appointment with an ENT.

Pollen, spores, dust, and pet dander can all irritate allergies, making spring the prime time for flare-ups. When you find yourself asking, “Am I sick, or is it just allergies?”, making an appointment with an ENT (ear, nose, and throat doctor) is the best thing you can do for yourself.

“Over-the-counter antihistamines aren’t always an effective treatment plan for allergy sufferers,” said Dr. Esmael Amjad, ENT at McLaren Lapeer Region. “If your allergies begin negatively impacting your quality of life, an ENT can help.”

Seasonal allergy symptoms involve:

  • Sneezing
  • Itchy, running, or stuffy nose
  • Cough
  • Tickling in throat

Hay fever is a severe form of seasonal allergies. Despite what its name suggests, a fever is not an actual symptom of hay fever. However, the symptoms that are involved can be just as miserable.

Hay fever symptoms can include:

  • Clogged ears
  • Sore throat
  • Decreased sense of smell
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Puffy eyes

Dr. Amjad is accepting new patients in Metamora. Call (810) 230-6102 to schedule an appointment today.
