Suffering from Seasonal Allergies?

While typically not life-threatening, environmental allergies can make you feel miserable, interrupt your daily activities and can even lead to secondary respiratory infections.

Adena Health System is here to help you stop suffering. Adena Allergist and Immunologist Dana Esham, MD is now accepting new patients.

Dr. Esham is specially trained in pediatric Allergy and Immunology, but enjoys seeing patients of all ages. 

As a board-certified allergist, Dr. Esham looks at the whole picture. From your family history to your overall health, she will create an individualized treatment plan that is best for you.

Easier than ever before, patients visiting Dr. Esham can now take a simple test to identify as many as 40 different allergies at once. “Our skin tests involve scratching the skin with different allergens using a plastic applicator,” explained Dr. Esham.

That’s right; needles are not necessary anymore!

“If you are allergic to dust mites then a dust mite cover can improve symptoms and decrease medication use,” she added. “If you are exposed to allergens during activities such as gardening or mowing then wearing a mask and showering afterward can be very helpful.”

Adena ENT and Allergy also offers allergy shots. “Allergy shots are a great alternative for those who wish to avoid medications or medications are not helping,” noted Dr. Esham.

Don’t let allergies stop you from enjoying all the wonderful experiences this spring and summer has to offer.
