Allergic rhinitis occurs when the immune system attacks a harmless substance, like the pollen in the picture below.
We see 4 main types of nasal conditions at KCAA:
Commonly called hay fever, this condition has cold-like symptoms. Sufferers may experience runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes. Allergic rhinitis occurs when the immune system attacks a harmless substance, like pollen. It can also be triggered by pet dander, mold, dust mite droppings, and cockroach particles. Symptoms can also occur due to smoke, strong odors, and changes in temperature and humidity.
A stuffy nose can have many different causes, ranging from allergies to sinus problems to the common cold. The proper diagnosis from an allergist can help you feel better faster.
This noisy sleep habit happens when breathing is partly obstructed. As many as half of all adults snore at some point. Anatomy, alcohol consumption, allergies, a cold, and weight can all contribute to snoring.
About a third of people with hay fever symptoms don’t have allergies. They have non-allergic rhinitis, or a sensitive nose. This usually affects adults and can cause symptoms like a runny nose and nasal congestion year-round.

We continue to closely monitor the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and are following the recommendations of The Center for Disease Control and state health departments.
Our doors remain OPEN and we ARE GIVING ALLERGY INJECTIONS ON A WALK-IN BASIS AS LONG AS YOU ARE FEVER FREE. For everyone’s protection, the KCAA walk-in clinic is closed for general patients. Patients not getting allergy injections will be seen by appointment only.
We want to remind you that it is important that you keep your underlying medical conditions under control. Poorly controlled allergies increase the risk of contracting any respiratory virus, as these are contracted when people rub their nose or eyes and spread to others by sneezing. Poorly controlled asthma is a major risk factor for poor outcome. Spirometry combined with medical history and exams are the best way to ensure your asthma is optimally managed and to make sure that you have a plan of action for when you get any viral illness.
Please be reassured that the health and well-being of our patients and staff continue to be KCAA’s top priority. We have taken many steps to keep our office as safe as possible. These include:
• Screening patients for fever. Anyone with a temperature 100.4 or greater within the past 48 hrs. is not permitted in our office. This is for the safety of other patients.
• Limiting visitors. Please make every attempt to only bring the patient unless no other option exists.
• Removing all magazines and reading material from our waiting rooms and exam rooms.
• Having allergy shot patients wait in their cars so our waiting room volume is kept minimal.
• Sanitizing our waiting room every 30 minutes.
• Having our staff wear personal protective equipment for the safety of patients and staff.
We want to encourage you to continue to come in for your allergy injections, especially with spring pollen in the air. Our providers are looking at our schedules in advance and cancelling appointments where the risk to the patient exceeds the benefit. If you are uncertain, please speak with one of our nurses.
We at KCAA remain committed to the health, safety and well-being of our patients!
