  • Of Pharaohs and Bee Stings

    Was the death of a pharaoh the first report of an insect sting reaction? In 1989, an article in Hospital Practice by Ovary stated that the death of Pharaoh Menes after a wasp sting in 2600 BC was the first reported account of an anaphylactic reaction to insect stings. According to Krombach, this was based on hieroglyphs found on his sarcophagus and tomb. Dynasties that came after Menes believed him to be the first Pharaoh and he is credited with many things, including the introduction of papyrus and writing. But Krombach and his fellow authors argue that he was likely a mythical figure who may not have even lived. Oh well -- so much for exotic origins. No matter when the first reaction was, it is likely that insect sting allergy started a very long time ago

    A new type of inhaler is now available to deliver albuterol for patients with asthma or reversible COPD. The inhaler is called ProairRespiclick and is available for patients 12 years or older to treat acute symptoms of airway constriction (bronchospasm) or as prevention of exercise induced asthma symptoms. Most patients refer to albuterol inhaler as the “rescue” or “emergency” inhaler.
  • Allergy Myth Busters!

    Myth: Some breeds of dogs are hypoallergenic, so dog allergic patients can tolerate having these dogs in the home.
  • Our very own Allergy Myth Busters!
    July 1, 2015
    Myth: Radiocontrast media reactions are related to shellfish allergy. Busted! Patients with a history of allergy to shellfish are not at increased risk for anaphylaxis from iodinated contrast media. This myth stems from the false assumption that an iodine allergy is the common cause of contrast media and shellfish allergy. In fact, iodine is not an allergen and is structurally unrelated to the tropomyosin proteins which can cause anaphylactic reactions to shellfish. Although it is clear that contrast media can cause a variety of reactions, the mechanism of most of these is poorly understood and is not due to ‘iodine allergy’. Individuals with any allergic condition are at higher risk of contrast media reactions, regardless of a history of allergy to seafood. Fortunately, reactions to contrast media are quite low.
  • Immunotherapy (Allergy Shots): The Allergy Partners Way
    June 10, 2015
    Allergy immunotherapy, more commonly referred to as allergy shots, is the most effective treatment available for environmental allergies. By reducing your reactions to pollens, pet dander, molds and dust mites, allergy shots reduce symptoms and your need for medication. While it is a highly effective treatment, immunotherapy does not contain medication and is composed of natural protein extracts from allergens. By giving gradually increasing doses of the allergen, immunotherapy teaches your immune system to tolerate exposure to the allergens in the environment. It is highly effective in treating sinus and eye symptoms along with asthma, sinusitis and allergy induced eczema. To assure that proper treatment is provided, immunotherapy should always be prescribed by a board certified allergist. Certification by the American Board of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology assures that your doctor has received at least 2 years of additional training specifically in treating allergic diseases. Only through this intense training can a doctor gain full knowledge of immunotherapy treatment.
