  • Skin Testing to Diagnose Allergies
    May 11, 2015
    Many common types of allergies can be confirmed with the use of skin testing. But many people may not realize how and why skin testing is used, or think that this procedure is painful and inconvenient. In truth, skin testing is now more accurate than ever, and it need not be painful or an ordeal.

    May 8, 2015
    Previous research indicates that women tend to experience more severe allergic reactions - anaphylaxis – than men. The reason behind this has remained somewhat of a mystery, however, a new study published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology suggests estrogen could be to blame.

  • Ask the Expert: “I have hives. I must have allergies.”
    April 29, 2015
    Your Allergy Partners physician would likely respond to the above statement with a cautious “maybe.” Hives, like many of the responses of the body, can be caused by many stimuli, not just allergies. Take, for instance, the similar example of sneezing. Sneezing is a common allergic symptom; however, we all know that non-allergic stimuli can cause sneezing, from infections due to the common cold to irritants in the air (pepper, for example). In a likewise fashion, hives can be due to allergic and non-allergic causes.
  • Intranasal influenza vaccination is well-tolerated in egg allergic children with asthma or recurrent wheeze
    April 23, 2015
    Nobody likes getting a shot, especially children. However, US health guidelines recommend annual influenza vaccination of children, especially those with asthma, and including those with egg allergy. Live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) is an intranasal vaccine administered via the nose licensed for use in children. However, this vaccine contains egg protein and it is currently suggested that it not be used on children with egg allergy. Furthermore, North American guidelines recommend against its use in children with asthma. Thus, asthmatic or egg allergic children receive a traditional flu shot.
