About 50 million Americans suffer from asthma, hay fever and, or other allergy-related conditions.
The most common symptoms people suffering from allergies experience are:
- Sneezing and runny nose
- Persistent post-nasaldrip
- Itchy, swollen, red and/or teary eyes
- Itchy nose, throat, and eyes
At our allergy & asthma clinic, the team of board-certified allergists are committed to treating allergy and asthma patients of all ages, from infancy to adulthood. Allergy and asthma conditions can be very uncomfortable and painful and they can even interfere with many people’s lives and make it difficult for them to complete daily tasks. The allergy specialists at The Allergy & Asthma Center have many years of experience in treating even the most severe asthma and allergic conditions.
Some of the allergy conditions we treat at our allergy clinic include:
- Sinus Allergies
- Pediatric Allergies
- Food Allergies
- Drug Allergies
- Skin and Dermal Allergies
- Insect Allergies
The first step in treating allergies is to properly assess what specific allergies you or your child may be suffering from. At our allergy & asthma clinic, we can develop a treatment plan for our patients and make them a part of the healing process once the specific allergens affecting them have been identified.
Allergy tests can be performed in a number of different ways such as:
- Skin or Prick Testing
- Blood Testing
- Intradermal Testing
- Challenge or Elimination Testing
- Patch Testing
Different allergens may require different or multiple types of testing. Elimination or challenge testing is most commonly used to screen food allergies, while patch testing is used to screen skin allergies. Skin or prick testing is the preferred method of testing for screening most allergies because it can be performed quickly and test results are ready immediately.
Once our allergy & asthma experts at The Allergy & Asthma Center assess and diagnose the specific allergens that are affecting you the healing and treatment process can begin.
Educating Our Patients
The next course of action after diagnosing the specific allergens attacking a patient’s body is to inform and educate the patient. Our board-certified allergists are trained to inform and help patients understand what their allergies are and what exactly is triggering them. We may diagnose different medications or recommend a comprehensive treatment plan to help treat your allergies. At our allergy clinic, the expert team of allergy specialists also guide our patients and develop a plan of action with our patients to deal with their symptoms and triggers. An action plan will allow patients to deal with severe episodes.
Recommended treatment plans at our allergy & asthma clinic include:
- Environmental control which means minimizing a patient’s exposure to the allergens that affect them.
- Pharmacotherapy which means a physician may diagnose medicines including antihistamines, steroid nasal sprays, and other non-steroidal blockers of inflammation
- Immunotherapy or desensitization involves introducing extracts of allergens (pollens, dust, molds, etc.) into the patient’s body to induce an immunologic response. This leads to the eventual reduction or elimination of the allergic reaction.
