ALLERGIESAllergies are the immune system’s reaction to certain foreign substances called allergens. Common allergens include dust mites, pollen, pet dander, insect stings, medications, and food. When your immune system reacts to these allergens by coughing, sneezing or wheezing, it means you’re allergic to it.
Treatments are designed to suppress the allergic reaction so that your child can be safely exposed to the allergens and have the symptoms treated when they occur. Our treatment approaches range from environmental controls to immunotherapy (allergy shots).
At Clinton Wellness Center, we diagnose and treat both adults and children, which can be especially helpful for families with multiple allergies or asthma-sufferers. This includes:
- Immune deficiency
- Chronic nasal symptoms (rhinitis)/Hay fever
- Food and drug allergies
- Skin allergies
- Frequent sinus infections
- Severe allergic reactions, such as anaphylaxis
- Eosinophilic esophagitis
- Stinging insect allergies
