Skin allergies are so annoying.
Eczema, dermatitis and hives demand our attention because they look bad or itch.
Medications can help symptoms but further study will frequently help find the cause leading to better long term care.
The patient with skin problems who comes to our office will be evaluated for associated food allergies and intolerance, inhalant allergies, toxic exposures, gluten intolerance, nutritional deficiencies, chronic infections or metal and chemical sensitivity.
Treatments are often helpful and include improved nutrition, avoidance of irritants or allergens, allergy desensitization, and topical care.
