Sanford Allergy and Immunology specializes in diagnosing and treating allergies, asthma and conditions affecting the immune system in children and adults. Our immunologists provide testing, diagnosis, treatment, and on-going management for a variety of immune-related conditions. We help patients identify the factors that trigger asthma and allergic disorders and help them prevent and control their condition—with the goal to improve their health and quality of life.
Some of the more common allergies include but are not limited to:
- Respiratory allergies
- Skin allergies
- Allergies to cosmetics, such as artificial nails, hair extensions and henna tattoos
- Allergies to medications
- Allergies to food
- Allergies to insect venom
- Allergies to animals
- Allergies to natural rubber (latex)
- Occupational allergies
The three most effective ways to treat allergies are avoidance, immunotherapy and medication. Our providers will determine the treatment that will work best for you based on factors including the extent of the allergic disease and your tolerance to specific medications.
Allergy triggers can be anywhere and everywhere. Learning about what triggers your specific allergen has is important to maintaining control of your allergy.
