You’re sniffing, sneezing, and your eyes won’t stop watering. Gotta love those allergies! But when does a bout of allergy symptoms turn into a need to visit an allergy center for relief? We have some things for you to consider.

Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

Nasal spray and tissues or visit Our Allergy CenterIf your head won’t stop throbbing or your cough seems to be a permanent fixture, or if you feel like you’ve resigned yourself to a lifetime of sickness, this may be a sign that it’s time to make a trip to your allergy center. For many people with allergies, they simply become used to their constant sniffles, sneezes, and congestion. But you don’t need to accept that as a fact of life.

By visiting an allergy specialist, such as Dr. Lenkowski at Roanoke Valley ENT & Allergy, you can start living a more normal and sniffle-free life. There are a couple of things Dr. Lenkowski can do to help with your symptoms.


A prescription for medication is a simple thing that can help immensely. While you could try generic over-the-counter medication, these don’t always work for the more constant symptoms. With a more powerful medication, however, you can greatly improve, or even eliminate, allergy symptoms. Taking care of these problems before they get too extreme can also help avoid ear or sinus infections.


While prescription medication is the most common treatment for allergies, we also offer immunotherapy. This includes allergy shots and low-doses of allergens under the tongue (to help build immunity over time). Once we obtain the desired result, we will reevaluate your dosage.

Mild Allergies

If you are experiencing allergy symptoms, we feel for you. It’s not fun to sniffle all day. But when it comes to mild allergy symptoms, coming into an allergy center isn’t always necessary. For these mild symptoms, over-the-counter medications can be effective in helping you feel better.
