Dawn Person, 61, a pastor in Jesup, Iowa, had had allergies for well over ten years. “I had all of the nagging allergy symptoms — sneezing, watery and itchy eyes, runny nose, congestion; and it got to the point that I was feeling tired all of the time. Also it’s hard to be around people when you are sneezing and coughing alot. It makes them understandably uncomfortable. I had been trying over the counter medications and it just got to the point it was more than I could deal with,” said Dawn.
Dawn made an appointment with Allergy & Immunology specialist, Dr. Javen Wunschel. “I felt like she listened to what I said, heard me and we worked together on discussing and then planning the best way for me to get relief,” Dawn said.
Dr. Wunschel had Dawn go through testing to see exactly what she was allergic to. “I found out I was allergic to cats, grasses, dust mites, etc. Dr. Wunschel prescribed medication for me and made some recommendations for changes to the over the counter medications I was taking,” said Dawn.
“I felt so much better after seeing Dr. Wunschel. My symptoms have almost totally gone away and I don’t have that cloudy head feeling. I have a clearer head and feel like I can think better.”
