When Spring Allergies Take Control, Get Relief at Tower Health Urgent Care

Tower Health Has Urgent Care Locations for Help with Your Hay Fever Symptoms

April showers may bring May flowers, but they also bring sneezing, congestion, and runny noses for millions of people who suffer from springtime allergies. Tower Health Urgent Care is here to help 365 days a year, offering patients access to advanced, comprehensive care from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hay fever, also can cause sinus pressure, headaches, wheezing or coughing, itchy eyes, itchy throat, and irritation to the ear canals. These symptoms can be triggered by outdoor allergens such as wind-blown pollens from plants, trees, grasses, and weeds, which are most common during spring and summer. Hay fever can occur any time of year because of indoor allergens such as mold and pet dander.

"While over-the-counter medications bring relief for many allergy sufferers, there are times when your symptoms become persistent and you need to see a healthcare provider," said Hazel Bluestein, MD, Tower Health Urgent Care Chief Medical Officer. "On evenings and weekends when your primary care provider is not available, Tower Health Urgent Care is prepared with convenient locations and hours to meet your healthcare needs."
