Tips that will prepare you for spring allergy season
by Jennifer Collins, MD
Tips that will prepare you for spring allergy season Typically, allergic symptoms are similar to those of a cold; sneezing, itchy watery eyes, sinus pain/pressure, itchy ears, itchy throat, post nasal drip, cough, or asthma.

As an allergist and immunologist, I often hear from patients who are worried about having recurrent colds. Symptoms of the cold virus are similar to allergies, and it can be difficult to differentiate from allergic disease. The good news is there are ways you can you tell the difference and tools to prevent and treat disease.

The Stinging Truth
by Thomas F. Rosenberg, MD
The Stinging Truth What we are talking about are the insects that sting, namely the wasp, yellow jacket, hornet, bee, and fire ant.

Despite what you may have heard, not everyone is allergic to insect stings. But, if you are, you may be in danger if the stings are not managed properly. Every year, thousands of us are stung by insects and suffer the typical symptoms of local pain, redness, swelling and some itching at the sting site. However, those who are allergic to insects may suffer life-threatening reactions (anaphylaxis) if not treated properly.

How you can help your grandchild with food allergies
“Dr. Thom’s Eat Only Diet”

by Thomas F. Rosenberg, MD
How you can help your grandchild with food allergies It is estimated that up to two million or eight percent of children in the United States are food allergic.

It has been stated in many allergy references that approximately fifty million Americans suffer from some form of allergic disease. However, before we can talk about food allergy, we must first get a basic understanding of what constitutes an allergy. The “hallmark” of allergy is the body’s production of a specific antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). This ability to produce allergy antibodies is given to us through genetics. Therefore, we can blame our parents for our hay fever, allergic asthma, or food allergy.

Weapons against allergic symptoms…
by Murray Grossan, MD
Weapons against allergic symptoms… Because of the overuse of antibiotics, especially using inadequate doses, bacteria have developed antibiotic resistance.
We know that allergy and asthma are increasing today, but we don’t know why.

Is it because children are over-treated with antibiotics? Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, children in West Germany were given antibiotics with every sniffle, and they developed a large incidence of allergy and asthma. In East Germany, children received few antibiotics.

Allergies Can Start In Infancy
by Thomas F. Rosenberg, MD
Allergies Hay fever is not really fever and has nothing to do with hay.

Did you ever wonder whether that stuffy, runny nose of yours is really due to allergies? If so, you are not alone. Over 20% of the population, man or woman, child or teen has the genetic material to allow them to become allergic.

Allergies are generally inherited, although sometimes they are fussy and may skip a generation. We sometimes use the word “atopy” to describe a person who has the potential to develop an allergy. If a parent is allergic, 20-25% of his/her children will have the potential to become allergic.

There is hope for Allergies
by Paul Williams, MD
There is hope for Allergies Ah, spring! Jonathon always loved this time of year… the flowers poking up through the ground, and the blooms on the trees. Finally, the gray, cold, gloomy days of winter were coming to an end. For his wife, Sylvia, however, the spring brought a time of misery. Every bright, sunny day meant endless sneezing, a constantly dripping nose, and itchy and watery eyes. She was overcome with symptoms in the early spring, late spring and early summer, and again in the late summer and early fall, with only a mild reduction in between. She actually looked forward to the cold, gray days of late fall and winter. However...

Controlling Springtime Allergies
by Craig Karpilow MD FACOEM
Controlling Springtime Allergies In the springtime, the blooming of many plants begins. During their blooming stage, plants begin to shed pollen molecules (allergens), which conflict with some people’s bodies. Common springtime/summer allergies are the result of the body’s reaction to certain molecules in the environment. These molecules are called allergens. These allergens can be many common items that are present in our environment, including dust and mold. Most people do not react to these elements, but you may be one whose body overreacts to these and experiences symptoms like a runny nose, sneezing, and watery eyes.
