CONDITIONS WE TREAT

Allergic rhinitis, commonly referred to as “hay fever”, is caused by the immune system overreacting to harmless substances in nature such as pollen, dander, and dust.
Asthma is a chronic condition that causes inflammation and narrowing of the bronchial tubes (the passageways that allow air to enter and leave your lungs). Asthma affects nearly 26 million Americans.
Atopic Dermatitis, commonly referred to as eczema, is a disorder in skin barrier function that affects 10-20% of children and 1-3% of adults. Eczema causes dry, sensitive skin that often flares causing redness and intense itching.
Approximately 4-6% of adults and 4% of children have a food allergy. Food allergies occur when your immune system over reacts to a food that is harmless. The immune system sees it as a threat and triggers a protective response.
Allergic Eye Diseases
Allergies can affect your eyes in addition to your nose and lungs. Allergy eye symptoms consist of redness, burning, itchy eyes, and watery eyes. The most common allergic eye condition is called allergic conjunctivitis.
Contact allergy is another allergic condition that affects the skin. The skin will develop a red, itchy rash sometimes with blisters when it comes in contact with an allergen or an irritant.
A drug allergy occurs when your immune system overreacts to a medication and identifies it as harmful thereby triggering a protective response.
Insect Sting Allergy
A stinging insect allergy occurs when your body produces a certain immune response to the venom from insects. The most common insects to cause an allergic reaction are bees, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, and fire ants.
Anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis symptoms usually come on suddenly and can progress quickly.
Urticaria, commonly referred to as hives, is another allergic skin condition. Hives present as red, itchy whelps that often resemble mosquito bites. They can be triggered by food, medications, insects, or illnesses. In some people, there is no external factor triggering the hives.
Angioedema is a particular kind of swelling of the tissue beneath the surface of the skin. Angioedema can occur within the eyelids, face, lips, tongue, hands, feet, and even in the abdomen.
A cough is always a nuisance, often interfering with school/work performance, ability to sleep, and even participation in social activities. A chronic cough is a cough that lasts longer than 8 weeks in an adult and longer than 4 weeks in a child.
Sinus infections are a common problem in the United States affecting over 31 million people and resulting in over $1 billion in over the counter medications and $150 million dollars in prescription medications.
An immunodeficiency is a condition where one or more parts of the immune system do not work correctly resulting in an increased risk of infection. Most immune deficiencies you are born with, but others you can develop later in life.
Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) is a condition where inflammation involving eosinophils (immune cells often involved with allergies and asthma) develops in the esophagus (the tube carrying food form your mouth to your stomach).
