Allergy and Immunology

Allergies are among the most common chronic conditions worldwide.

An allergic reaction typically triggers symptoms in the nose, lungs, throat, sinuses, ears, lining of the stomach or on the skin. For some people, allergies can also trigger symptoms of asthma.

A number of different allergens are responsible for allergic reactions.

The most common include:

  • Pollen
  • Dust
  • Food
  • Insect stings
  • Animal dander
  • Mold
  • Medications
  • Latex
