Doctor's column - Allergy symptoms

At this time, seasonal allergies are common in Hokkaido due to the birch (Shirakaba) trees.

This year, it’s earlier due to the warm winter and according to the Hokkaido Institute of Health, there should be more pollen this year.

Patients with hay fever have a blocked or runny nose, sneezing and itchy red eyes. If you get symptoms at the same time every year, talk with our doctor.

Some people can prevent symptoms by starting their medicine a week or 2 before that time of the year.  We can help reduce your symptoms. Asthma and rhinosinusitis often co-exist and are believed to represent a spectrum of the same disease entity (one airway hypothesis).

Therefore, treatment of nasal disease improves asthma. We can provide care for hay fever, allergic conjunctivitis, chronic sinusitis, asthma, and atopic dermatitis.
