Hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis, affects about one in five people. It causes nasal symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, stuffiness and post-nasal drainage.
About 17 million people in the U.S. have asthma. Asthma occurs when the airways in your lungs (bronchial tubes) become inflamed and constricted. Asthma signs and symptoms include shortness of breath, chest tightness, coughing or a wheezing sound when exhaling.
A cough is a common symptom that may often be triggered by post-nasal drainage due to sinus problems, allergies, acid reflux or asthma. During your allergy evaluation, the cause of your cough will be investigated, rather than only treating your symptoms.
Sinus infections, also called sinusitis, are a very common condition in adults and children. Symptoms include chronic stuffiness, post nasal drip, discolored nasal drainage, facial pain or cough.
Food allergies are a growing problem. Peanut allergy is the most common, but other foods causing allergic reactions include tree nuts, cow’s milk, eggs, fish and shellfish. It is estimated that 3% of adults and 6% of children under the age of three have food allergies.
Post-nasal Drip and Congestion
Swelling in your nose and drainage of mucus down the back of your throat can be caused by allergy or an infection (either viral or bacterial). These symptoms can cause snoring and a cough.
Hives and Swelling
Hives are common and are often associated with severe itching and swelling. There are many different causes, which will be thoroughly investigated at the time of your evaluation. A personalized treatment plan will be prescribed.
About 60% of American households contain pets. These loveable companions can be the source of allergic symptoms for at least 10% of the population, with a much higher percentage of pet allergies among asthma patients.
Stinging Insect Allergies
Allergy testing can determine which insects are responsible for your allergy. Treatment options include avoidance recommendations, medications to be taken after a sting, and venom allergy injections.
Allergic reactions to medications are quite common. However, many drug allergies can actually be outgrown over time. Some adverse reactions are actually side-effects rather than true allergies.
Eczema is an itchy rash that can be caused by allergy (especially food allergies), dust mites, and cat and dog dander. Dryness, infection, overheating, irritants and emotional upset can make it worse.
Headaches can be caused by tension, migraines and neck or jaw (TMJ) problems. Sinus problems and underlying allergies can be important triggers for headache as well.
Allergic eye symptoms result in itchy, watery or red eyes. Exposure to pollen, dust, mold or animal dander can trigger these common symptoms. They may also worsen during certain seasons or throughout the year.
Several types of immunodeficiencies exist where a weak immune system can result in frequent or more severe infections. After taking a careful history, blood tests can reveal abnormalities in the immune system.
