Common Questions and Answers about Pediatric allergy and immunology


Avatar f tn Hi, Yes you could be experiencing re-actions to an unknown allergens.Fresh coats of paint can trigger off allergic re-actions. Are you in contact with either on a day-to-day basis? As in an occupation or living in close proximity-in the vicinity of some-thing associated with either? First, the bad news: For many people, allergy season has become a year-round stint, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI). But there's good news too.
1938479 tn?1325705620 The experts in a allergy and immunology center, can provide you with a overview of allergy testing and skin testing. That can help you identify what you you might be allergic too in a safe an controlled environment. If your allergic to something or you think you might me or if you are just wondering what you might me allergic too.
Avatar m tn If the IgE was high that could be allergy, also sometimes parasites can cause IgE to get higher. But if you dont' have diarrhea or other gastric problems then you probably don't have a parasite. IgG is one of the immunoglobulins that can be high when you are fighting an infection or your immunity (long term and past infections) is good. IgM is short term (current) infection. So, it probably is okay to have a slightly lower IgM and higher IgG.
Avatar m tn Do not waste your money on quackery/dubious tests: "The following procedures are not valid for managing food allergies: Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy (NRST) purports to use a BAX 3000 device to assess and treat allergies and many other conditions with a 'light and sound energy relaxation technique' that supposedly identifies problematic substances and conditions the body not to react negatively to them."

Avatar f tn To find out whether your child is having contact dermatitis to milk(eczema)or he is having milk allergy(rashes are present in the mild form of milk allergy),skin tests and food challenge tests have to be done by an allergist.Pls consult him for that. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn However, there is a way of preventing the long term symptoms of allergies. This is through a process known as immunology, more commonly referred to as an allergy shot.You can also discuss this treatment option with the allergist. Hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
Avatar f tn She has been tested and treated for reflux, asthma, sinusitis, immunology. She is becoming resistant to antibiotics and we are very frightened for her. Anyone been through a similar issue, or is she the only medical mystery out there?
Avatar m tn Give him plenty of fluids and juices especially citrus juices and if the symptoms still persist then infections and chlorine allergy have to be ruled out. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

They only heal the symptoms not healing the cause. Tell me what do you think about all this nutrition balance question? Thanks! And keep up the hope.
1415174 tn?1453243103 It is best to consult an expert on immunology about the allergy testing and only after consulting a professional doctor with expertise and experience on vaccination issues can the decision of vaccinating or not vaccinating can be taken. Do take care and keep us posted. Best of luck!
Avatar m tn I am only looking for a second opinion based on facts known about allergy shots. I am not sure if my doctor is worried about hurting me or if I am totally wrong. I seem to benefit more when it was strong enough to trigger a small controllable reaction 4-6 minutes after an injection. 2 hours later when the reaction wore off I felt GREAT! This question is if they are triggering a reaction does that mean that they will not work as well?
Avatar f tn I also had hormones check...all came back in normal range. I started having allergy shots about 2 years ago and have a feeling this may be the cause but I know for sure. Has anyone had any hair changes/loss due to allergen immunology? I have started taking a thyroid supplement and lots of other hair supporting supplements, including bone broth. Would apprceiate any help, or advise. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Agree with bberry.
Avatar f tn Pathology says it points to immunology but they say it is not an immune disorder. We are currently waiting to see Allergy Dr. and Rhuemotology. Although we have moved and changed many things, nothing has helped. He now has no pain relief. He doesn't eat well cause he can't, and is fatigued. I have heard from the Dr.s over and over that they have heard of this but never have seen it. They have seen mouth ulcers but never to this degree.
Avatar m tn How was this allergy determined? The two options for removal would be either a pediatric surgeon or a hepatobiliary surgeon. Although removal would not be predicted to be difficult it would be best to see someone a little more experienced in working in the area.

Avatar f tn The CBC showed high Eosinophils, high Basophils, and low lymphocytes. We were told that it is likely allergy related and to follow up with the family doctor. We followed up with the doctor and a stool sample and abdominal x-ray were done. The stool sample was negative for parasites and the abdominal x-ray showed moderate stool-unremarkable were the remarks. 3 weeks after the initial CBC, the family doctor performed a repeat CBC and liver enzymes. The Eosiniophils were now even higher at 28%!
Avatar f tn I took your advice and had immunoglobulin testing and an allergy panel. I have a load of allergies, from dust mites to milk, wheat and eggs (all my favorites). I also had a cat scan done because of an inflammation that I have above my collarbone. Severe enough to make my neck look enflamed-right side more so than the left. The cat scan showed so inflammation in my lymph nodes in the anterior or postior of the neck. My immunology test for P-ANCA (mpo) WAS .92 and my ANA was Positive 1:80.
Avatar f tn It is highly unlikely that these abnormal eye movements are due to any food allergy. My suggestion is you try and get the child in to see a pediatric ophthalmologist. With this type of problem your visiton on October 21 should be with the doctor and not the nurse practitioner.
Avatar m tn Hello, Antibiotics are usually prescribed for infections and if you are having severe allergies then you can take a combination of antiallergy medications, steroids and if nothing proves useful then you can take allergy shots as well. However, there is a way of preventing the long term symptoms of allergies. This is through a process known as immunology, more commonly referred to as an allergy shot. So please discuss about these with your allergist.
Avatar f tn It could be rebound angioedema so you should get an allergy/immunology consult as soon as possible
177505 tn?1220442258 I would definitely find a pediatric allergist in your area. I have one child who had severe food allergies and vomiting during or after eating is a big red flag. Since food allergies can be so dangerous, I'd definitely get that checked out. What you wrote could have been written by me about my oldest son, and his problems all turned out to be severe acid reflux. He didn't have reflux as a baby but all our problems started when he was three.
