Allergy and immunology

Dignity Health Medical Foundation offers allergy testing and immunotherapy for those wanting to take back control of their allergies. Allergy and immunology services involve the management of disorders related to the immune system. These conditions range from common to rare, affecting all ages and organ systems. Seasonal allergy symptoms aren't only a bother, but they can affect everyday activities. 

Allergies occur when your body reacts to certain outside substances that cause a reaction, or overreaction, from your immune system. Responses can come from particular foods, animals, or seasonal allergens, including pollen, grass, and molds. Allergy symptoms include a runny nose, coughing, breathlessness, itchy skin, hives, or swollen eyes, lips, mouth, or throat.

Immunotherapy is a preventive treatment for allergic reactions to substances. It involves giving gradually increasing doses of the allergen, often in the form of injections, tablets, or drops, to which the person reacts. The incremental increases of the allergen cause the immune system to become less sensitive to the substance.
