Common Allergy Triggers

Allergies come in many forms, and no two people are alike. We personalize our approach according to your unique needs, looking at your symptoms and history to help determine how to proceed. While the symptoms may not be the same across every patient, the trigger may be the same. Some of the common allergy triggers our team can support you through include:

  • Trees, grasses, and weed pollen

  • Mold spores

  • Animal allergies such as cats, dogs, horses, and rodents

  • Dust mites and  roaches

  • Venom allergies, including bees, wasps, and other stinging insects

  • Food allergies

 

Allergies can develop in childhood or as an adult. Depending on the specific trigger, they can also be seasonal or year-round. Regardless, if you're suffering from allergies, diagnosis and treatment can make a big impact. By treating the symptoms and supporting your immune system, we can help improve your quality of life, reduce the risk of severe reactions, and potentially decrease the severity of your symptoms and the amount of medication you must take.

Allergy Testing and Diagnosis

Our allergy testing center is equipped to test and diagnose your allergies with various methods depending on your unique needs. While treating the symptoms can help you on a day-to-day basis, understanding the underlying trigger can make a big impact on your treatment approach. This is especially true if you are experiencing symptoms but are unsure of what the cause is. Our practice primarily uses two methods of allergy testing:

  • Skin tests are the main method of allergy testing, providing reliable results as to what your body is sensitive to.

  • Blood tests are another option, useful for patients with certain skin conditions or who otherwise can't tolerate skin testing.

 

We determine which test to use based on your needs, preferences, and potential triggers. Our team can perform both skin and blood tests if necessary.

Allergy Treatments and Options for Care

Once we have determined the cause of your allergies, the next step is to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. We encourage patients to be active participants, as there are many options for allergy treatments. No one treatment fits every patient, and we believe it helps to have the care of a skilled provider to support you through the process. Some of the ways we help our patients include:

Food Allergy Care: Food allergies are unique in that they are not responsive to immunotherapy shots like environmental allergies are. We develop a treatment plan that includes slowly introducing food allergens in extremely small doses, under supervision, to get your body used to them over time.
Symptom Control: This can include practicing avoidance, which isn't possible for every allergen but can still be effective for those who can manage it. Some of the tools and medications that can help with symptom control include inhalers, steroids, nasal sprays, daily antihistamines, and carrying an EpiPen®.
Immunotherapy with Allergy Shots: Allergy shots are a well-established form of immunotherapy, especially for environmental allergies. Our allergist will inject a small amount of the substance you're allergic to. We gradually increase the dose, and your immune system begins to react less to the allergen.

We also encourage you to regularly visit our practice for follow-up exams so we can monitor your condition. If your allergies are still problematic, we can continue to help control your symptoms and find the best treatment for you.
