Birmingham Allergist

Allergy Testing & Immunotherapy

If you're one of the millions of Americans who suffer from allergies, you know how uncomfortable they can be. Sneezing, itchy eyes, a runny nose, and fatigue are all common symptoms of allergies. Seasonal allergy sufferers understand the dread of allergy season, but there are ways to get relief.

Our experienced allergy practice in Birmingham, AL provides comprehensive allergy testing for environmental and food allergies. We offer allergy shots for patients suffering from chronic allergy disease, also known as conventional immunotherapy and rush immunotherapy. Allergy testing can help you find out what you're allergic to, so you can avoid your triggers. If you're struggling with allergies, immunotherapy can help train your immune system to better tolerate your allergens.

Allergy shots are administered onsite; however, special arrangements can be made for patients traveling or students away at school.

Common ENT Conditions
& Knowing When
to Consult a Specialist

Being educated about ear, nose and throat issues is crucial to your health since there are common conditions that often affect this part of your anatomy. These conditions range from allergies to severe health problems that require diagnosis and treatment by your ENT in Birmingham.

  • The ear, nose and throat are all part of the upper respiratory system. They are grouped together because they share anatomy and similar mucus membranes and also get similar infections. Conditions affecting one part of the upper respiratory system may affect other parts too. Understanding this correlation can help you to maintain better health and stay free of infections.

  • Children and adults often get ear infections the same way. The mucosa lining can swell because of colds, infections and allergies. Children get more ear infections than adults do because they have smaller and less angled Eustachian tubes. However if you often get ear infections as an adult, your Eustachian tube may not be working correctly. Untreated ear infections can lead to more serious infections and eventually permanent hearing loss and sometimes problems with speech and language development in children. If you suspect that you have an ear infection, you should schedule an appointment for an assessment at our clinic.

  • Earwax naturally protects against infections. One mistake that people often make is trying to remove earwax and ending up pushing it further into the ear canal. Impacted earwax has to be removed by an ENT specialist. Earwax is supposed to come out naturally; therefore, consistently removing it disturbs the wax glands. Excess accumulation of earwax symptoms include ear pain, plugged sensation, itching or hearing loss.

  • Sinusitis is a condition affecting the sinuses. This type of infection often causes facial pain and headaches. Symptoms include accumulation of yellow or green pus trapped in the sinus cavities, headaches, nasal congestion, sore throat and fever. Sinusitis could be the effects of bacterial, viral or fungal infections as well as allergies. Our specialists are skilled in the treatment of all of these common problems.

  • Having constant phlegm in the throat is quite uncomfortable. It could be caused by pollution, dust or an anatomical obstruction. You will notice there is a problem when your nose produces more and thicker mucus than it normally does. Strep throat is also another serious infection that affects the throat with many potentially dangerous complications such as heart problems. Common symptoms for strep throat include stomach pain, body aches, swollen tonsils and white patches in the throat. When the vocal chords are affected by an infection, your voice becomes hoarse since the working parts are usually swollen. Prolonged hoarseness can be quite serious and you should see a physician if the problem persists.
