SHERIDAN — Community members who think they might have allergies are invited to make an appointment for a simple allergy screening test to be held at Big Horn Ear, Nose and Throat.
The test will take about 45 minutes and will test for several standard allergens.
In the case of a positive test, options for a more extensive follow-up screening test will be available at a discount for those who participate in the screening clinic.
There are certain medication restrictions to follow five days prior to the screening so see the Big Horn ENT website at www.bighornentclinic.org for specific instructions.
According to Dr. Cheryl Varner, the spring months are the time that seasonal allergies are often experienced.
“There are options available for treatment, but sometimes just knowing what causes your allergic reactions is enough to be able to prevent symptoms,” Varner said in a press release.
Common symptoms of allergies include runny nose, sneezing and red, swollen or watery eyes.
The cost of the clinic is $15 to be paid at the time of the appointment. Appointments will be April 22-26.
To schedule an appointment contact Big Horn Ear, Nose and Throat at 675-4646 by Wednesday.
Big Horn Ear, Nose and Throat is an affiliate of Sheridan Memorial Hospital and is located at 1416 W. Fifth St.
