Conditions & Treatments
We offer outstanding allergy and immunologic care in the following areas:
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that causes your child's airways to become sensitive to certain triggers. The disease requires clinical care from a physician or other health care professional.
Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)
Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a chronic skin condition characterized by dry, itchy skin. A common issue in babies and children, eczema is often caused by allergies.
A drug allergy occurs when something in a medicine causes the immune system to overact. Common drug allergies seen in children include allergies to certain antibiotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, sulfa drugs and chemotherapy drugs.
Environmental allergies are abnormal immune responses to substances that exist in our everyday surroundings, including pollen, dust, animal dander and house mold.
Eosinophils are specialized immune cells involved in inflammatory processes. Eosinophilic disorders occur when elevated amounts of eosinophils cause chronic inflammation and tissue damage in various parts of the body.
A food allergy occurs when your child’s immune system reacts unusually to a specific food or foods.
Hives & Angioedema
Hives (urticaria) is an outbreak of red, itchy and swollen areas on the skin. Angioedema is a type of swelling in the tissues under the skin. Both conditions often occur as an allergic reaction to certain foods and medicines.
Inborn Errors of Immunity (Primary Immunodeficiency/ Immunodysregulation)
Immune deficiency or immunodysregulatory disorders refer to a set of conditions in which a weak response of the immune system causes infections that develop and recur more frequently, are more severe and last longer than normal infections or when a strong response of the immune system may injure different areas of the body.
Insect Sting/Venom Allergies
Venom from insect stings – including those from honeybees, yellowjackets, hornets, wasps and fire ants –sometimes trigger serious allergic reactions in some children.
Natural rubber latex is used in the production of gloves, balloons, rubber bands, erasers, toys and a host of other products. Both children and adults can be allergic to latex.
Sinusitis is an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. A common cause of sinusitis in both children and adults is allergies.
