Effectively Managing Your Body’s Reaction

Whether you suffer from allergies year-round or just seasonally, Lake ENT’s allergy specialists in Leesburg, Tavares and The Villages® can identify the underlying cause of your symptoms and develop a comprehensive plan to effectively manage or treat your allergic reactions. Our team understands how frustrating it is to be perpetually faced with allergic reactions which often take much of the enjoyment out of life. We promise you that, no matter what type of allergy you suffer from, we will diligently work to formulate a solution that provides you with relief and improves your overall health.

What Are Allergies?

Allergies are incredibly common, especially in Central Florida, and both environmental and hereditary elements play a substantial role in determining the allergies that you are most susceptible to developing. Your immune system protects your body against the development and harboring of bacteria and viruses. Your immune system also protects against allergens, which are generally harmless to the health of your body. Common allergens such as dust, dander, mold, pollen and insect bites can trigger your body to release histamines – chemicals within your body to fight the foreign substance – causing an allergic reaction.

Are You an Allergy Sufferer?

You may suffer from allergies if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Runny nose
  • Stuffy nose
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy eyes, nose and throat
  • Watery, swollen eyes
  • Nausea
  • Frequent nosebleeds
  • Frequent sinus infections
  • Snoring
  • Itchy skin
  • Rash
  • Hives
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue or exhaustion

Depending on your contact with a foreign allergen, you are more likely to develop symptoms within a specific area of your body. If you breathe in an allergen, you are more likely to develop an itchy, runny or stuffy nose and throat.


Of course, every case of allergies is unique, so it is important to seek help from an experienced, qualified specialist who has a proven track record of safely providing relief to patients no matter how complex their cases. At Lake ENT, our team does just that. With your best interests in mind, our physicians and sub-specialists will determine the root causes of your reaction, which most commonly are environmental irritants, and provide you with relief that continues to last over time. Once allergy testing, skin testing and blood tests have been performed and a treatment plan has been configured by one of the allergy specialists, you will begin your journey toward relief. The treatments that we offer include medications such as antihistamines, corticosteroids, decongestants, allergy shots and program desensitization. We also recommend that patients avoid the root causes of their allergies. Program desensitization can be customized to your specific needs and the composition of your individual immune system. All of our treatments are designed by our team, in-office, to accurately take into account all aspects of your health.
