Treatment types and procedures

Eye & Nasal

Up to 40% of Americans suffer from nasal or eye symptoms. We know you need relief! After testing, we'll tailor an action plan to your symptoms, which will provide step-by-step instructions for which medications to take. In addition to educating you about how to avoid certain allergens, we offer therapies including oral and topical medications, allergy shots, or allergy drops.

Asthma

Asthma therapies can seem complicated, but don't worry! We will demonstrate and review inhaler technique, provide a wealth of educational handouts, and customize an easy-to-understand action plan for you. In addition, the field of asthma has had some rapid and exciting growth in terms of treatment options! We offer multiple newly-approved injection treatments for severe asthma. We also offer inhalers that have been approved for younger children, inhalers which combine multiple medications, and inhalers that can last a full 24 hours for control.

Medication Allergies

Medication allergies are frustrating when alternative medications may not be as effective, may be more expensive, or may be associated with more side effects. Based on your history and potential testing, we will diagnose whether you are truly at risk for a dangerous allergic reaction, whether you can tolerate the medication, or whether you cannot. Of note, 90% of patients who report a penicillin allergy are not or are no longer truly allergic, so please come on in to find out.

Food Allergies

Food allergies can be daunting, but we provide an action plan on which foods to avoid, what symptoms to monitor for, and how to treat a reaction. We'll provide additional resources for avoidance, demonstrate epinephrine device use, and if warranted, also offer food challenges in a safe environment. Food desensitization (via patch, sublingual, and oral therapy) is currently undergoing rigorous trials but has not yet been approved by the FDA. As safety and effectiveness are of paramount importance to us, we will be offering this as soon as it is approved (hopefully 2019)!

Eczema

Eczema therapies can seem confusing-which cream should you use, for which area, and for how long? At AACT, we will create an eczema plan with clear, detailed instructions. We may recommend avoidance of relevant allergens and may offer oral, topical, as well as injection therapies. We are excited that he field of eczema has numerous ongoing research trials for therapies. Recently, there have been FDA-approved injection treatments available for severe eczema, and non-steroid creams available for mild eczema.

Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory Disease

Some patients who have nasal polyps and asthma have sensitivity to NSAIDS such as ibuprofen or aspirin. For these select patients who may have "Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory Disease," our office offers an aspirin desensitization procedure that can help prevent polyp regrowth, control asthma, and keep allergy symptoms at bay.
