Large number of adult as well as Paediatric patients suffering from Asthma, allergic rhinitis, skin allergies like Urticaria and Angioedema, eczemas, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis and food allergies are getting treated in the clinic currently. A thorough evaluation includes a comprehensive allergy history and physical examination. Extensive allergy skin prick testing for both aeroallergens and food allergens to identify the particular allergens causing the patient's symptom are done. Blood tests, Patch testing for various contact allergens, Lung Function Testing or Spirometry are also done where ever indicated. Based on the above test results, doctor makes individualized treatment plans that includes pharmacotherapy, advice regarding avoidance measures and specific targeted allergen immunotherapy. Immunotherapy provides long lasting immunity by modifying the patient's symptoms upon exposure to the relevant allergens, thereby reducing the need for medications like inhalers. For eg: a child with allergic rhinitis will be prevented from getting asthma if immunotherapy is instituted early. This method treats the root causes of allergy problems by inducing a natural immunity to the allergens.
