Types of Allergens

Our allergy and immunology specialists’ approach to helping you control and manage your sensitivities is developed on a case-by-case basis, depending on your symptoms. We take the time to determine all of the sensitivities you may have to:

  • Animal dander
  • Airborne allergens
  • Bees and stinging insects
  • Contact allergies
  • Dust mites
  • Foods
  • Latex
  • Medications including penicillin
  • Pollens and molds

Common reactions you could experience include asthma, anaphylaxis, sinusitis, rhinitis (hay fever), hives and rashes. Other medical problems may also arise due to your sensitivities. Our allergy and immunology specialists help you understand the condition and work with you to develop your customized treatment and maintenance plan.

When to See an Allergist

If you are experiencing any of the following, make an appointment with one of our allergists today:

  • Asthma, especially allergic asthma
  • Allergies or hay fever
  • Allergic reactions to insect stings
  • Eczema
  • Food allergies
  • Immunodeficiency syndromes such as Common Variable Immunodeficiency (antibody deficiency)
  • Sinus problems
  • Wheezing, shortness of breath, or persistent coughing not caused by colds or viruses

It’s important to note that our allergy and immunology specialists cannot treat all skin and autoimmune disorders. If you have contact dermatitis (skin reactions to irritants) or require patch testing, consult with one of our dermatologists. For an autoimmune disease (such as Lupus or Grave’s disease) contact a rheumatologist.
