Allergies

Allergies can be complex and sometimes very difficult to diagnose, since the same symptoms produced by allergies can also be caused by non-allergic conditions. Dr. Syed will evaluate your history and conduct a physical examination when he is considering allergy testing*. If the cause of your symptoms cannot be determined through information from your history and physical, more extensive investigation will be necessary.

Allergy symptoms can take many different forms. Sneezing or stuffiness of the nose accompanied by redness or itching of the eyes are classic allergic symptoms, but are not always due to allergies; they can be caused by other conditions such as a constant low-grade sinus infection, temperature changes, or reaction to smoke or fumes.

Allergy Treatment

Treatment for allergies is usually in the form of allergy shots or allergy drops under the tongue. Both treatments are called Immunotherapy, a program designed to desensitize you to those substances to which you are allergic.  It is most effective for those allergies caused by substances which are inhaled such as pollens, mold spores, house dust, and animal dander.
