Allergy and asthma can present itself in troubled breathing. It's important to know whether your cough is being caused by post nasal drip or by asthma. Asthma is a condition in which airways swell and narrow, making breathing difficult. It can be a life-threatening condition and requires the help of a specialist to identity and help you manage your triggers and possible medications, including preventative treatments and rescue medications.
If you're experiencing symptoms that include cough, wheezing or asthma attacks, we'd love to help you feel better.
Food allergy and drug allergy can share some symptoms, like rash, hives, gastrointestinal issues and swollen airways. Many people are familiar with common food allergies, like nuts, eggs, shellfish, wheat, cow's milk, soy and fish, but any food can cause an allergy.

Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) is an allergic inflammatory disease of the esophagus. It is a chronic condition which leads to a buildup of a type of white blood cell in reaction to acid reflux, foods or other allergens. If you're suffering from Eosinophilic Esophagitis, you may have trouble swallowing, heartburn, or have GERD that is unresponsive to medications and more.
Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that can be life-threatening, and therefore requires a person to be under the care of an allergy specialist. During an anaphylactic episode, people may get a rash, drop in blood pressure and narrowing of the airway. If you need help managing an allergy, we're here to help.
Skin conditions like hives and excema can be aggravating and uncomfortable symptoms of allergy. Hives present as itchy, inflamed, red patches on the skin in response to an allergen, whereas ecxema are scaly, itchy patches of skin, often found on the elbows, knees and face. Both hives and ecxema can be addressed by an allergy specialist. If you would like help managing these allergic conditions, we can help.
