Ear, nose and throat problems in adults are among the most common reasons for doctor visits in the United States with roughly 27 million seeing an ENT doctor each year. Who could blame them? There’s nothing worse than feeling as if you can’t breathe. But what if we told you that you can skip the doctor visit and bill altogether? Specialty Care Pharmacy offers a number of solutions and products to remedy these ENT issues! Here are some common ear, nose and throat problems in adults and how we can help:
1. Sinus Infections
Sinus infections, known officially as sinusitis, are one of the most common health complaints that lead to a doctor visit and one of the leading causes of antibiotic prescriptions. Sinus infection symptoms include a stuffy or runny nose, postnasal drip, facial pressure, cough, fever and more. Nearly 15% of individuals reported having a sinus infection in the previous year in a National Health Interview Survey. But before you resort to antibiotics that can put your system out of whack, give one of our customized solutions a try! Specialty Care Pharmacy is proud to provide medicated nasal rinses that target the site of your issues. Daily Hist is a dietary supplement that supports sinus and respiratory health with its blend of flavonoids, antioxidants, proteolytic enzymes and botanicals designed to combat common environmental allergens.
Are allergy symptoms driving you mad with nasal congestion, itchy or watery eyes and fatigue? You aren’t alone. Seasonal allergies affect 25.7% of adults, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Allergies occur when the immune system reacts to a foreign substance, or allergen, such as pollen or pet dander. Symptoms arise as a response to coming in contact with such allergens. Our Allergy Kit has everything you need to clear your nasal passages and get rid of your symptoms! This kit includes Alkalol Nasal Wash, NeilMed Sinus Rinse - Xylitol, 4-Hour Energy Tablets and Daily Hist. Each of these products will go a long way in helping you feel as if you can breathe again!
3. Sore Throat
A sore throat occurs when the back part of your throat, or pharynx, becomes inflamed. A sore throat is another one of the most common ear, nose and throat problems in adults and can be either viral or bacterial. Viral sore throat symptoms include a dry cough, a scratchy or painful feeling in the throat, a runny or stuffy nose and a low-grade fever. A bacterial sore throat, or strep throat, includes symptoms such as throat pain, body aches, swollen lymph nodes, fever and tiny spots inside the throat. Natural home remedies such as sipping on warm or cold liquids, gargling saltwater and over-the-counter antihistamines and pain relievers from Specialty Care Pharmacy can help! A steaming hot shower can help to loosen mucus and clear your throat.
