Allergy Care

Allergy symptoms arise when your immune system believes the body is under attack. The body treats a common material like a dangerous virus or bacteria and overreacts in an attempt to remove the usually harmless allergen from the system.

What Causes Allergies?

Common allergy triggers we see among our patients of all ages include:

Dust mites, pollen, and pets

Foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, and eggs

Venom from stinging insects

Medications, such as antibiotics like penicillin/amoxicillin

What Do Allergy Symptoms Look Like?

Allergy symptoms and reactions can range in appearance and severity. Keep your eye out for:

  • Excessive coughing
  • Excessive sneezing
  • Watery eyes
  • Fainting
  • Hives
  • Itchy skin
  • Runny nose
  • Stomach ache
  • Swelling of the skin, lips, eyes, or tongue
  • Tingling in or around the mouth
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

How Can I Test for Allergies?

Allied Physicians Group Allergy practices offer comprehensive allergy testing to determine the allergens that affect you or your loved one. The most important part of the visit is the discussion with the clinician to determine what tests may be appropriate. Allergy testing is often ordered inappropriately by non-specialists and is difficult to interpret. Our highly trained allergists will obtain a comprehensive clinical history to help determine what, if any, testing might be necessary. Testing can include:

What Allergy Treatments Can I Expect?

Allergy treatments may include:

  • Allergy shots
  • Emergency medications, such as auto-injectable epinephrine
  • Eye drops
  • Food elimination
  • Medication
  • Nasal sprays
  • Sinus rinses
  • Topical creams and ointments
  • Biologic immune-modulating medications
  • Food Desensitization/ Oral immunotherapy (OIT)-  This procedure involves giving increasing doses of the food to which you or your child is allergic to achieve a state of immunologic tolerance (desensitization). The immune system is re-trained to handle and not react to food proteins/allergens through regular eating of small amounts of food.  It should ALWAYS be supervised by board-certified allergists for safety. The current alternative that is the standard of care is strict avoidance of the food allergen.

Asthma Care

Asthma can affect people of all ages and often starts in childhood. Asthma is a chronic (long-term) condition that affects the airways in the lungs and may be triggered by pollen, exercise, viral infections, or cold air. However, not all wheezing is asthma, and getting a comprehensive evaluation by our specialists may help you find the proper care, evaluation, and treatment.
