With #FLU season already here, the #CDC recommends the public to be alert for symptoms such as: #runnynose and watery eyes, #cough, #fever, #MuscleAches, and #malaise, among others.
If so, patients should have testing with the *new Flu-SC2 Multiplex Assay. This allows to test at the same time for infection caused by any one of the 3 viruses: SARS-CoV-2 (#Covid-19), #Influenza A and Influenza B.
Do you suffer from allergies? Hay fever, eczema and asthma are all types of allergic conditions, and can occur in all age groups. More than 24 million people in the U.S., including 6 million children, are affected by asthma, a type of allergic reaction affecting the airways.
Are you suffering from hay fever? 85% of people with allergic rhinitis are able to reduce their symptoms after Immunotherapy treatment.
Immunotherapy can weaken the way your body responds to the substance causing the allergy, known as ‘allergen’. By exposing the body to small amounts of the allergen, this allows your immune system to get used to (I.e. become desensitized to) the allergen. As a result, the symptoms of hay fever and other allergies can decrease significantly.
