At Plume, we provide management for seasonal allergies and allergic rhinitis. These are common conditions, affecting an estimated 15-30% of individuals in the U.S., and can lead to symptoms impacting quality of life.  Allergies are most commonly triggered by seasonal mold/pollen and indoor allergens (including dust mites, pets, insects/rodents, and molds). Allergies often coexist with other conditions, such as asthma, atopic eczema, and allergic conjunctivitis.


What are the symptoms of allergies?

Sneezing, nasal congestion, clear nasal discharge, nasal pruritus.

How does Plume treat allergies?

Your Plume provider will conduct a video appointment to review your symptoms and create the best care plan. We can treat occasional allergy symptoms by prescribing:

  • Nasal glucocorticoids

  • Nasal antihistamines 

  • Nasal decongestants 

  • Nasal Ipratropium 

  • Nasal steroid/antihistamine combo

  • Oral antihistamines

  • Oral decongestants

  • Oral antihistamine/decongestant combo 

  • Ophthalmic antihistamine

We do not prescribe

  • Immunotherapy (“Allergy shots or drops”)

  • Antibiotics

  • Singulair (montelukast) and other leukotriene-receptor antagonists

Please note: we do not treat or manage viral or bacterial nasal infections/rhinosinusitis. 

Can you provide referrals for an allergist?

Some patients may need additional allergy care that must be done in person, such as skin testing or allergy shots (immunotherapy). We may recommend that you seek care for these locally.

Can you prescribe EpiPen autoinjectors (epinephrine pens)?

Managing anaphylactic symptoms is not within Plume’s scope of practice. However, if you develop allergy symptoms from your prescribed medication and an epinephrine pen is necessary for safety, we can provide a prescription.
