With Allergy season just around the corner, it's inevitable that many will go through the motions, coughing, sneezing and wheezing their way through Winter.

However, not everyone is aware that they have allergies and when they are, they don't know what to do about them.

Allergies interfere with the quality of life and can really affect your ability to focus[1]. Most of the time allergies will affect your ears, nose and throat[2] and can be prevented with the help of an ear, nose and throat doctor.

An ear, nose and throat doctor (also called an ENT doctor, an otorhinolaryngologist or an otolaryngologist) is a healthcare professional who specializes in treating your sinuses and glands, particularly in your ears, nose and throat. Sometimes an ENT specialist will do a general health check up on all the areas of your head and neck, but the emphasis will always be on the ears, nose and throat.
