ALLERGY POLICE

 

The OLLU Allergy Police is a patient web site dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with allergies through education and awareness. Allergies reflect an overreaction of the immune system to substances that usually cause no reaction in most individuals. These substances can trigger sneezing, wheezing, coughing and itching. Allergies are not only bothersome, but many have been linked to a variety of common and serious chronic respiratory illnesses (such as sinusitis and asthma). However, with proper management and patient education, allergic diseases can be controlled and people with allergies can lead normal and productive lives.

Today's pollen forecast:

The Office of Health Services can assist you with free over-the-counter allergy medications to treat minor reactions. The Health Services Family Nurse Practitioner can also offer recommendations on medications or provide written prescriptions for those patients needing stronger relief. If needing a prescription, please call to set an appointment to see the Practitioner.
