Allergic disease, a hypersensitivity response to certain things in our environment, often affects the ear, nose, and throat region in both children and adults. An allergic response can occur to many things around us including seasonal pollens, pet exposure, and foods and lead to sneezing, congestion, plugged ears, mucus in the throat, voice changes, and more serious reactions such as anaphylaxis.
The incidence of allergy is increasing in the U.S and is linked to increases in asthma and airway disease. Recognition and treatment of allergy, if a contributing factor in ENT disease, is important to achieve the best clinical improvement. For those that are candidates for immunotherapy, it can often result in much better control of symptoms for years and decrease medication requirements.
