Peanut allergies are rising quickly.

Peanut allergies are rising quickly. Late-breaking research presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) Annual Scientific Meeting suggests that peanut allergy in children has increased 21 percent since 2010, and that nearly 2.5 percent of U.S. children may have an allergy to peanuts Thankfully, parents now have a way to potentially prevent peanut allergy by introducing peanut products to infants early after assessing risk with their pediatrician and allergist. Diagnosing food allergy is not easy, but a proper diagnosis is very important to prevent allergic reactions at home. Allergists are specially trained to administer allergy testing and...

It’s National Cheeseburger Day. But, did you know that some people are actually allergic to meat?

Meat from any kind of mammal — beef, lamb, pork, goat, and even whale and seal — can cause an allergic reaction. While we do not know the number of people in the U.S. affected by meat allergy, we do know that it is uncommon. Unlike common food allergies to milk, egg, peanut, and wheat that present as immediate skin, respirtatory tract, and gastrointestinal sympotms, meat reactions are delayed for 4-6 hours. This delay often allows the preceding meal to be missed in the diagnostic detective work. Ironically, a bite from the Lone Star tick can cause people to develop an...

Back to school advice from Windom Allergy

Back-to-School
Back to school - With school back in session, here at Windom Allergy that means, bring on the contagious respiratory diseases.  Once one child has a ‘cold’, the rest of the class is sure to follow.  Kids with asthma are hit the hardest since viral infections almost always trigger asthma attacks.  Throw in all the rain we’re having and the subsequent burst of mold spores, and our allergic asthma patients are in for a double whammy.  At the first sign of a ‘cold’, we encourage our asthma kids to start their maintenance medication (usually an inhaled steroid) or increase the dose...

The doctors and staff at Windom Allergy and the Food Allergy Center of FL send their prayers.

Windom-Allergy-Prayers
The doctors and staff at  Windom Allergy  and the  Food Allergy Center of FL  send their prayers to the Alabama family who recently lost their 3 year old son from an allergic reaction to milk.  The adorable little boy was being tested at a children’s hospital in AL for sensitivity to milk contained in a baked muffin.  This is the first ever reported fatal reaction to a food challenge test.  As allergists we have always known of the seriousness of food allergy and this tragic event should make everyone aware.

Penicillin Allergy Testing—Are you REALLY Allergic?

Penicillin
We have evaluated hundreds of patients with a history of reactions to penicillin(s) (penicillin, amoxicillin, or related cephalosporins).  After evaluation and testing, more than 90% of these patients can safely take these drugs without fear of a severe allergic reaction. The testing occurs in two phases, skin testing and an oral challenge.  We first inject a small amount of the drug under the skin with a sterile needle and look for a mosquito bite-like reaction in 15 minutes.  This is called intradermal testing.  If this is negative a series of three oral doses of penicillin or related antibiotic will be given...
