We've written before about allergy testing in our Sugar Land ENT clinic, but there are still those out there that aren't aware that they're allergic to certain foods or drinks. The holidays are supposed to be a time of fun and celebration, but if you discover that you've developed an allergy to a food that you eat every December, the fun can quickly turn to frustration. At Houston ENT & Allergy, our specialists can test you for food allergies and recommend the proper methods to avoid a breakout or reaction this winter.
Even if you're just experiencing an itchy rash on your hands or face after eating a certain food, and it goes away after a day or so, it's best to see an allergy specialist. The doctors in our Sugar Land office have the knowledge and experience to properly diagnose your food allergy or intolerance, and can help prevent a more serious reaction in the future. It's very possible that you will have to change your eating and snacking habits in order to avoid anaphylaxis, which can require a hospital stay.
We want you to enjoy your holiday season, and if you're noticing that as your baking and sampling those holiday treats, your body is reacting in ways it hasn't before, please come see us right away. It may be possible that you can continue eating the foods you have been, but more than likely, dietary changes will have to happen. Only after visiting our ENT clinic can you know for sure!
