Allergies are an all-too-common issue for adults and children throughout Georgia. Unfortunately, numbers of allergy sufferers have been rising in recent decades, and allergies sometimes carry the threat of anaphylaxis. However, know that effective allergy treatments are available, whether an allergy is mild or severe.
Dr. Chacko treats all of the most common allergies, from hay fever and food allergies to aspirin allergy and oral allergy syndrome. The process starts with a diagnosis that gives patients clarity about their condition. Next, a treatment plan can be developed to address the situation. This can span from allergen avoidance strategies all the way to possible oral immunotherapy treatment (OIT) to build tolerance.
Asthma causes inflammation of the airways and makes breathing very difficult. While asthma can affect people in different ways, it usually leads to wheezing, shortness of breath, a tight chest and coughing. Of course these symptoms are uncomfortable, but those with chronic asthma can find many daily activities are impossible due to their breathing issues.
Dr. Chacko works with asthma patients to treat the causes of their condition and provide much-needed relief. Asthma is frequently caused by allergies and aspirin, with an encounter with an allergen starting an asthma attack. By treating these allergies, it is possible to get your asthma under control and live a more comfortable life.
While many sinus infections are fairly mild and clear up with some rest, sinusitis can lead to persistent and aggravating problems. When the sinuses stay inflamed due to an allergic reaction, such a problem is unlikely to go away without treatment.
Dr. Chacko treats individuals with chronic sinusitis, recurring sinus infections, sinus headaches and postnasal drip. While you may have tried to “just get used to” your blocked sinuses, a constant sore throat and other issues, treatment options are available.
Allergy testing is an essential part of the treatment process as it narrows down the exact allergen or allergens at fault. Because of similarities in food proteins and substances such as pollen, detecting the source of an allergy is not always clear-cut. For example, you could be allergic to a single type of tree nut or to many varieties, and this is where allergy testing can help.
From our allergy centers in Atlanta and across Georgia, Dr. Chacko and his team will use skin prick testing, blood testing and oral challenge tests to determine what you are allergic to – and what can be ruled out.
Immunotherapy is a process that desensitizes the immune system to an allergen, drastically reducing the risk of an allergic reaction. As one of a limited number of allergists and immunologists in Georgia providing immunotherapy treatment, Dr. Chacko is well-known.
For allergies like hay fever, bee stings and dust, allergy shots are used to build tolerance. For food allergies, oral immunotherapy treatment (OIT) is the best option. OIT involves consuming the food in small doses, with the levels being raised over time as the body becomes accustomed to the allergen. Allergy shots follow the same process, but the substance is injected versus being consumed orally.
