An allergic condition is simple your immune system reacting to particular substances that do not necessarily affect others the same way.
At “The Pittsburgh Allergist”, tests are performed daily to determine what causes a patient’s allergy symptoms. These tests will assist in establishing an appropriate treatment plan that will eliminate allergy symptoms and help the patient go back to a life without discomfort and irritation caused by his or her allergies.
An allergist studies the human immune system. They are able to let you know whether the symptoms you are experiencing are allergic reactions or not. You will be advised of the things it’s best to remove from your environment and you will also be given treatment to relieve the symptoms.

Our Allergy Clinics provide individually formulated antigen therapies that are intended to aid in eliminating the sensitivities you may have to pollens, molds and other things that trigger the symptoms that you experience that cause you so much discomfort. These unique therapies may permit you to be in the company of the allergens and remain free of the typical reactions and corresponding symptoms In addition to avoidance and symptomatic treatment, some allergic conditions can be cured through immunotherapy, also known as allergy shots. This treatment is highly effective in modulating the immune system to develop tolerance to what is normally an offending agent.
