Frequently Asked Questions


Your family doctor can help you determine when it is appropriate to see a specialist in allergy and immunology. Many common allergic diseases or symptoms can be treated by your general practitioner, such as many cases of rhinitis, hay fever, and asthma. However, a referral to our practice may be appropriate in delicate or unusual circumstances, or if your symptoms are accompanied by infections of the sinus, ear or chest.

Glossary


Allergy – an uncontrolled response to foreign proteins in the body. Often, these foreign substances are usually harmless, but nonetheless they trigger an allergic reaction.

Anaphylaxis Shock  a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction. Although rare, these alarming reactions can occur as a result of a response to an injected drug (i.e. penicillin), specific kind of food, or after an insect sting.

Antihistamine drugs – used as histamine blockers to reduce symptoms like itching, sneezing and a runny nose

Asthma – is a chronic lung disease that develops when the lining of the airways become inflamed and swollen restricting the air flow to and from the lungs.

Contact dermatitis – the inflammation of the skin caused by direct contact with allergens like nickel, latex, certain cosmetics, detergents, a specific animal, chemical or a vegetable.

Eczema – the inflammation of the skin causing itching and irritation.

Epinephrine – a natural hormone, also referred to as adrenaline, that works to increase the heart beat and help improve breathing by dilating the airways. It is the most-often used medication to treat anaphylaxis shock.

Histamine – a chemical in the body that is released during an allergic reaction that often causes symptoms like restricted breathing, itching, sneezing and a runny nose.
