Allergy & Immunology


Seasonal allergy symptoms aren’t only a bother, but as allergy sufferers can attest, they’re a huge hindrance to your everyday activities. During the Sacramento allergy season, watery eyes, sneezing, nasal congestion and wheezing can affect your ability to sleep, work and perform outdoor activities. Allergies can even lead to severe symptoms such as asthma.

Allergies occur when your body reacts to certain outside substances that trigger a reaction, or overreaction, from your immune system. Triggers can come from certain food, animals, or seasonal allergens including pollens, grass and molds.

Don’t fall victim to allergies. Prepare yourself for the Sacramento allergy season by opting for allergy testing at Mercy Medical Group in Folsom, Elk Grove, Carmichael, Sacramento and Rocklin. Allergy testing can determine what substances, animals and food your body is allergic to, allowing you to avoid an allergy attack before it happens.

If you suffer from asthma, allergy help is a necessity. Opt for Sacramento allergy testing, and find out what allergens trigger your asthma attacks.

Let a Mercy Medical Group allergist provide you asthma & allergy help.
