Spring Allergy Relief with Compounding

Spring Allergies

Spring is in the air! While we welcome the warmer weather and blooming flowers, we also welcome spring allergies. Seasonal pollen counts have been rising each year. Don’t let the outdoors keep you indoors. The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills can help!

The Changing Landscape of Seasonal Allergies

Pollen from trees, flowers, weeds and grasses make up one of the most powerful allergens, causing reactions in over 50 million Americans each year. Many of these allergens are based on seasons and geographic location. Spring typically brings an increase in tree and weed pollens.

The recent years of changing weather, plus climate change-induced pollutants (ozone and nitrogen dioxide) are removing the demarcation between seasons. That means tree, grass, and weed pollens are hitting all at once, alongside mold, dust mites, and dander. Plus, the natural protection we have through our immune responses is going down as homes get cleaner and more sterile.

Compounding Treatments For Allergies

Everyone has a unique allergy profile that can be determined by an allergist, who administers a scratch test that exposes you to multiple allergens in low doses. Based on the identified allergens and your unique needs, we work with your healthcare team to design a unique treatment fit for you. While such allergy treatments have typically focused on injections containing small amounts of relevant allergens given at regular intervals, compliance has been low due to cost of time and fear of needles, especially in children.

We can customize oral drugs and nasal sprays based on the allergen and measured local pollen levels. Drops or lozenges placed under the tongue are also options. These needle-less drugs are easier treatments to take, are less time-consuming, and are associated with better compliance.

The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills has the allergy relief you need. As allergen trends change, unique treatments customized by us should be a key tool. Contact us today to see how we can assist you!
