The physicians and caregivers at KCAA address asthma and allergies. We’re specially trained, and are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. This unique focus means we’re able to stay on top of the latest treatments and research.
An allergy is an abnormal sensitivity to a substance. For most people, this substance causes no symptoms. But for folks with allergies, the immune system creates an antibody which, in turn, creates symptoms. Common allergy symptoms include head congestion, runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes.
These include nasal congestion and snoring. Non-allergic rhinitis – a reactive or sensitive nose – is also a common nasal condition.
These result from the immune system attacking harmless food proteins. The most common food allergies are peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish.
We all experience stings, but some people can have a severe systemic reaction. This can result in hives, swelling, tightness in the chest, and difficulty breathing.
These common conditions occur when an allergen triggers a skin reaction. Skin allergies can cause eczema, hives, swelling, and rashes.
Adverse reactions to medication are common, but some folks have true drug allergies. Symptoms include rashes, itching, and respiratory problems.
Asthma is a chronic lung condition that inflames and narrows airways. Asthma can cause shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, and chest tightness. It can be triggered by allergens, irritants like cigarette smoke, weather changes, exercise, and respiratory infections.
Many lung conditions are related to allergies and asthma. These include exercise-induced asthma, cough, and vocal cord dysfunction, which can masquerade as asthma.
This is an inflammation of the sinuses. Symptoms include thick nasal discharge, congestion, postnasal drip, cough, and headache. Sinusitis often occurs after a cold.
Recurring infections may be a sign of primary immunodeficiency disease. This happens when part of the immune system is absent or doesn’t work properly.
