Asthma and rhinitis can result from exposure to common and well known airborne triggers. These include dust mites, cockroaches, dog dander, cat dander, trees, weeds, grasses, and molds. These are found plentiful in the outdoors and can concentrate indoors, particularly in the carpet and duct work of a home.
The test we use to determine airborne allergens is the Phadia IgE. The advantage of this test over skin testing is it requires merely one vial of blood and can be done even on little children with ease. This is run through Sonora Quest and is covered under most insurance plans.
If allergies exist, a customized spray from SEROSLIT can be compounded to reduce allergic response through gradual desensitization. Most patients respond within a few weeks and can have results lasting for years. The use of SEROSLIT or a desensitizing therapy can eliminate the reaction to the source, and is extremely successful.
