Allergology

Allergology is the specialty of diagnosing and treating asthma and other allergy-related problems. People often experience these conditions as an abnormal response to foreign substances in the body, called allergens. While some allergies are not necessarily life-threatening, they can interfere with your daily life. However, in the case of anaphylactic shock, these reactions do become a medical emergency.


Common allergies: 

· Food – dairy, gluten, wheat, nuts, soy, shellfish 

· Medication – antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, chemotherapy drugs, muscle relaxers 

· Insect venom – bees, wasps, hornets, mosquitos, ants 

· Intestinal complaints


Common allergy symptoms include: 

· Sneezing, a runny or blocked nose 

· Swollen tongue, lips or face 

· An itchy, red rash 

· Chest tightness, shortness of breath
