Types of Allergies in Clinical Immunology

Clinical immunology is a medical discipline that studies the human immune response to certain allergens in our environment. Allergies are only one subset of disorders of the human immune system. They range from minor cases of asthma to fatal food allergies caused by nuts and milk. Doctors in this field have discovered that allergies result from a hyperactive immune response to certain pollutants, allergens, entering your system.

  • Allergy ymptoms include hay fever, asthma and shortness of breath. Some allergies may present with a skin reaction causing an uncomfortable rash. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, a clinical immunologist can test which allergen your body is responding to and how best to treat that response. Most allergies cannot be cured, though some can be prevented with shots. Doctors treat many allergies at the symptomatic level.
  • Food allergies are some of the most common among people. They can also be some of the most deadly. Nut allergies in particular have been known to cause severe anaphylactic shock. Physicians also often discover allergies to milk and dairy products. Most food allergies occur in children. Sometimes an affected child will grow out of his or her food allergy.
  • Allergies to other substances such as pollen, moss and dust can be identified by an immunologist with a simple prick test. Doctors determine your allergy by your body's reaction to the test. The field of immunology names pollen the main culprit behind the syndrome known as hay fever. Many of these natural allergies occur in adults as well as children and can be treated with a simple shot.
