Nasal Allergies & Hay Fever
Nasal allergies are frustrating to deal with. Who likes a runny nose? We diagnose and treat nasal allergies and hay fever for patients of all ages and with various symptom types.
Seasonal allergens such as pollen can cause your eyes to burn, itch, swell, and water. It’s important to identify these symptoms as allergies in case there’s another underlying issue.
A food allergy is an overreaction of your immune system to a particular molecule in food. However, not all reactions to foods are allergies, so it is important to understand the difference between food intolerances and food allergies.
Skin allergies often occur when an allergen is responsible for triggering an immune system response. There are a variety of conditions associated with skin allergies, and the Langord Allergy team can help you manage your condition.
Eczema is a red, itchy skin rash that can appear anywhere on the body, but it is most often found on the face or wrists, behind the knees or ears, and at the bends of the elbow. Although there is no cure for eczema, we offer treatments to manage the rash.
Hives are raised welts, or bumps, that can be found on any part of the skin caused by an allergic reaction. The hives can itch, burn, and sting. Hives are classified as acute or chronic based on how long an outbreak lasts.
Asthma is another common chronic disease characterized by the inflammation of the airways, or bronchial tubes, in the lungs. When triggered, muscles surrounding the airways contract causing them to become more swollen, twitchy, or spastic, making it difficult to breathe.
The immune system defends and protects the body from “invaders” such as viruses, infections, and disease. When part of the immune system is not functioning properly, it can result in an immune deficiency.
The sinuses are air-filled cavities located throughout the face and head. When they become inflamed, it’s known as Sinusitis, or more commonly a sinus infection. This is usually caused by a bacterial infection.
Most of the time the body’s antibodies are helpful in fighting off things like a bacteria or virus, but sometimes the body overreacts to some substances causing an extreme reaction known as anaphylaxis.
Stinging Insect Allergies
If you’re allergic to an insect’s venom, your body produces an antibody the first time you are stung. If stung again, your antibody will react with the venom and cause potentially dangerous allergy symptoms to occur.
