Allergies

You are not alone if you suffer from allergies. They are very common, affecting an estimated 50 million Americans, which is one in every six people in the United States. A wide array of allergens may trigger an allergic reaction in sensitive people through the air, by touch, or by ingestion. They can appear at any age, and can even disappear in childhood only to reappear in adulthood.

An allergy is an exaggerated immune response or reaction to substances that are generally not harmful. Those who have allergies are sensitive to more than one thing. Often, substances that cause reactions include:

  •     Pollen
  •     Dust mites
  •     Mold spores
  •     Pet dander
  •     Food
  •     Insect stings
  •     Medicines

Food allergies

Food allergies affect from 1 to 3 percent of the general population. A true food allergy can lead to anaphylaxis, which is a serious allergic reaction that can affect your skin, lungs, gastrointestinal tract and cardiovascular system. Some reactions may be fatal.

Epinephrine and avoidance are currently the main ways to manage food allergies. There are promising approaches on the horizon for “desensitization” to certain and foods and we will be sure to stay abreast of procedures and practices as they are approved by the FDA.

At Westside Allergy Care we offer a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and managing a true food allergy. We can help guide patients on the appropriate food avoidance practices while ensuring the best possible quality of life.


Asthma

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that as many as 6.8 million children have asthma, which is close to 10 percent of all kids. Asthma can also surface in adulthood. The symptoms range from mild to severe, requiring close monitoring at all times. If you or your child has been diagnosed with asthma or has symptoms of this health condition, make it a priority to learn as much as possible about managing it successfully.

Hives

Hives are a very annoying skin condition.  They are raised, red itchy bumps. Sometimes they can be very large and other times they can be small.  Causes of hives can often be elusive.  Testing for a specific trigger is tailored to what is going on with a person. Allergists are trained to come up with the best management plan for hives.  They will also do the appropriate testing to see if a cause for the hives can be identified.
