Allergy Overview

Allergy manifests itself in several ways in the ears, nose, and throat. To determine if allergy as a contributing factor to your symptoms, allergy testing is typically necessary. At Ear Nose & Throat Associates of Nassau County, there are several steps we take to insure the proper diagnosis which is imperative for successful treatment.

They include:

  • A comprehensive history
  • An examination of your ears, nose, and throat
  • Nasal endoscopy to rule out sinus infection and/or anatomical causes (deviated septum, turbinate hypertrophy) for your symptoms
  • Allergy testing
  • Possible CT of the sinuses
