Why & How?

Allergies are among the most common chronic conditions worldwide. Allergy symptoms range from making you miserable to putting you at risk for life-threatening reactions.

According to the leading experts in allergy, an allergic reaction begins in the immune system. Our immune system protects us from invading organisms that can cause illness. If you have an allergy, your immune system mistakes an otherwise harmless substance as an invader. This substance is called an allergen. The immune system overreacts to the allergen by producing Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. These antibodies travel to cells that release histamine and other chemicals, causing an allergic reaction.

Prevention Tips

Allergic reactions can still occur, even if you're diligent about staying away from known allergens. But there are steps you can take to reduce your exposure.Here are some ways to avoid an allergic reaction before it requires treatment:

One of the most important steps you can take to manage allergies before taking any medication is to avoid triggers in the first place.
Dr. Ansari & Powers Pediatrics can help you come up with a plan to accomplish this.

Watch out for food allergens

If you have food allergies, always check food labels and ingredient lists. Eating fewer processed foods and cooking whole foods at home lowers the risk of exposure to hidden food allergens.

Prevent mold and mildew

Prevent mold and mildew

To minimize these allergens in the bathroom, replace wallpaper with tile or paint walls with mold-resistant paint. Run an exhaust fan after taking showers and replace shower curtains at the first sign of mold. In the basement, running a dehumidifier can reduce dampness.

Keep the pollen out

Keep the pollen out

When you come home after outdoor activities, take off your shoes, shower, and change your clothes to get rid of any pollen you may have picked up. When possible, keep windows and doors closed.

Wash bedding frequently

Wash bedding frequently

You can greatly reduce your exposure to dust mites and pet dander by washing bedding and other items often. Be sure to use hot water.

Replace carpeting with hard flooring

Replace carpeting with hard flooring

This makes it easier to keep surfaces clean and free of possible allergens.

(HEPA) filter

Use a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter

These filters trap allergens and other airborne irritants, which may reduce your symptoms.

Types of Treatments available

Immunotherapy: Allergy Shots and Allergy Drops

Immunotherapy is a form of treatment to prevent allergic reactions by building up the immune system’s resistance. This is done through controlled exposure to substances that the person may be allergic to.

Allergy Shots

Allergy shots involve injecting small amounts of allergen extracts into the body to stimulate the immune system without causing an allergic reaction. Your doctor will increase the allergen dose over time.

Allergy Drops

Allergy drops are also known as sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). In this therapy, a small dose of an allergen is delivered in liquid or tablet form under the tongue to boost tolerance and immunity. The therapy is usually taken at home, typically daily.

Allergy Drugs

Antihistamines

Antihistamines work by blocking the effects of histamine (a chemical in the body that can cause allergy symptoms). They're sometimes combined with other types of drugs.

Decongestants

These medications relieve congestion by shrinking swollen nasal tissues and blood vessels. They are often prescribed along with antihistamines.

Steroids

These drugs can help reduce inflammation in the nasal passages, lungs, and skin. Steroid use can cause a wide range of side effects and needs to be closely monitored by your doctor.

Leukotriene Modifiers

Leukotrienes are chemicals the body releases as a response to allergens. They can cause airway constriction, inflammation in the lungs, and increased mucus production.

Anti-Immunoglobulin E (IgE) Therapy

Xolair (omalizumab) helps decrease allergic responses in the body by reducing the number of Ige (immunoglobulin E) antibodies the immune system produces in response to an allergen.

Epinephrine

Epinephrine is used to treat anaphylaxis — a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction — until emergency treatment can be administered.

Mast Cell Stabilizers

These medications block the release of immune system chemicals (histamine, leukotriene) that trigger allergic reactions of the eyes (allergic conjunctivitis) or nasal passageway. They are better at preventing than treating allergic symptoms, so they are given to patients with seasonal allergies starting about two weeks before allergy season begins.
