Understanding Allergies and Their Causes

Allergies are common among children, but they can develop at any age. In some cases, they can even disappear only to return years later. Many allergies are hereditary, so you are at a higher risk if a member of your family suffers from them. Additionally, you may develop allergies due to exposure to allergens when your immune system is weakened – like during pregnancy or after an illness. But allergies do not affect everyone the same way. Some individuals experience only mild symptoms, while others have severe reactions. Your reactions to certain allergens can even worsen over time, so it is essential to seek treatment from the professionals at Advanced Allergy, Immunology & Asthma, P.C. We will help you recognize your symptoms and determine what is causing them.

Recognizing Allergy Symptoms

Recognizing the onset of allergy symptoms may help you pinpoint the allergen that causes such a reaction. Substances that are harmless to many people may trigger an immune response in your body that is both unpleasant and concerning. Common allergy symptoms you may experience include:

  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Rash
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Shortness of breath

Our Comprehensive Allergy Treatments

Finding relief for your chronic or seasonal allergies is a multi-step process, but one we are adept at performing at our state-of-the-art clinic in Darien, CT. We will begin by scheduling a consultation with our board-certified allergist. Dr. Bouboulis will examine your symptoms and review your family and medical history to establish a baseline. The next step is to test for specific allergies. In many cases, this involves a process of elimination until we determine what allergen or allergens affect your immune system. We can do this through a series of skin and blood tests, among other approaches. Finally, once we have isolated the allergen that triggers a reaction within your immune system, we will determine a treatment plan. This may include medication or immunotherapy. The services and treatments we perform include:

  • Skin prick testing for food and environmental allergies
  • Intradermal testing for food and environmental allergies
  • Immunotherapy (allergy injections)
  • Sublingual immunotherapy (oral allergy drops)
