Allergies During the Holidays

Are holiday allergies keeping you on the sidelines? Take control of your symptoms with these quick tips.

When to See a Doctor for Your Holiday Allergies

Controlling holiday allergies is much harder if you're still asking: Was it the walnut tarts at your uncle's party that gave you an allergic reaction? Or his sociable little poodle? Maybe it was the turkey gravy?

If you're not really sure what's triggering holiday allergies, it's probably time to see an allergist, a physician specially trained to diagnose and treat allergies.

Not only can an allergist help you discover what's causing your symptoms, they'll also help you manage, even prevent them -- in the summer, during the holidays, any time allergies strike.
