Allergy can lead to poor sinus health.  Sinus infections are a leading trigger of cough and other asthma and allergy-like symptoms, so identifying and correcting allergic triggers is an important part of maintaining respiratory health.  The experts at Fairfax Allergy, Asthma and Sinus Clinic are trained to evaluate sinus problems as they relate to allergic disease, to help alleviate chronic congestion, post nasal drip and headache.

Insect/Venom Allergy
Insect stings can be life-threatening for some allergy sufferers, and this makes accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment crucial for people with this kind of allergy.  Venom immunotherapy has been shown to reduce the risk of severe allergic reactions to stings by up to 95%.  We don't want you to be afraid of stings while enjoying the beautiful summer weather! 

Contact Dermatitis
Contact dermatitis occurs when the skin comes into contact with a chemical or toxin that leads to a delayed allergic reaction.  Reactions are often delayed 48 to 72 hours making diagnosis difficult.  We offer comprehensive diagnosis and management of contact dermatitis and associated disorders of the skin, including both standardized and custom allergy patch testing.

Drug and Vaccine Allergy
The board-certified doctors at Fairfax Allergy, Asthma and Sinus Clinic can provide up-to-date diagnosis and treatment for many common drug and vaccine allergies.  Whether you have had a severe reaction to a medication, or have just been told since childhood that you were "allergic to penicillin,"  we can help.  We can also help parents sort out the difficult issues they face when deciding if certain vaccines are appropriate for their children.  Penicillin testing is now available!

Eosinophilic Esophagitis/Gastritis
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE or EoE) is a disorder characterized by the presence of a large quantity of eosinophils, which are a special type of white blood cell, in the lining of the stomach or esophagus (the tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach).  Symptoms vary widely, but may include chest pain, difficulty swallowing, vomiting, a feeling of "food getting stuck in the throat," and poor weight gain in children.  The board certified allergists at Fairfax Allergy, Asthma and Sinus Clinic have experience dealing with this complicated disorder, and can perform both traditional allergy testing as well as newer patch testing methods as part of a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment program.
