I don’t like being sick. I wish this cold was over! Honestly, how many times have you said/thought that?allergies
You know what a congested/runny nose feels like: it doesn’t feel good.
Imagine having a stuffy and runny nose all the time. Many people suffering from chronic and seasonal allergies are constantly at battle, trying to find relief. Some allergy sufferers can take over-the-counter medicine to clear up irritating symptoms.
However, for other people, general allergy medicine doesn’t always produce the best results.

Allergies got you down on your luck and sleep?

Catching those Z’s is crucial to having a productive and alert day. You don’t want to go to work or school feeling groggy.
Sleep problems are quite common in people who have allergic rhinitis, which can occur year-round or seasonally. Imagine trying to sleep with these symptoms:
  • Runny nose
  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Congestion
  • Sneezing
You feel sleep deprived from one week with the cold. It’s another story when you are dealing allergy symptoms around the clock, day in and day out.
It’s tiring to just think about it. When you can’t seem to fight off/avoid allergens, the next best thing is to talk to a professional, such as an ENT. In Manhattan, Dr. Richard Nass provides non-prescription and prescription medications to combat pesky symptoms. If medicine isn’t the answer, the next approach would be to start immunotherapy. This is available at Dr. Nass’ office.
Dr. Nass also treats obstructive sleep apnea. He knows how to utilize multiple treatments to help you.
