Treatment options

Our allergists understand that while some allergies occur at a young age, others can occur over time and produce sudden, often severe, symptoms that require immediate attention.

ALLERGY, ASTHMA AND IMMUNOLOGY

Determining the source of an allergic, asthmatic, or immune disorder can be a complicated process—which is why you want an experienced and specialized team on your side. Oak Brook Allergists proudly has a team of board certified allergists, registered nurses and nurse practitioners who are trained to treat and reduce the symptoms of allergic conditions. In the process of diagnosing allergies, one of our allergists will begin by performing an extensive history and physical exam. If your history indicates an allergic condition, the next step would be to perform an allergy skin or blood test. All of this can be done within your very first visit to our office.

The doctors and nurses at Oak Brook specialize in the treatment of all types of asthma, including:
• Occupational Asthma
• Exercise-induced Asthma
• Childhood Asthma
• Cough-variant asthma
To determine if an allergic asthmatic condition is present, we will recommend skin testing as well as a pulmonary function test. We work closely with you to develop an individualized care plan to figure out what is triggering your asthma symptoms. Take a Closer Look »

IDENTIFYING ALLERGENS

Using our panel of allergy skin tests, we are able to evaluate 32 different airborne allergens—including a variety of grasses, weeds, trees, dust, mite, molds, and pet dander. Also, because we know that sometimes food and pollen allergens cross-react, we may recommend food testing so that your allergy workup is complete. Without a doubt, the best allergy treatment in Illinois can be found at Oak Brook Allergists.


ALLERGY TREATMENTS

At Oak Brook Allergists, we don't just diagnose the source of your allergic, asthmatic, or immune disorder—we do whatever it takes to minimize symptoms and recovery periods by offering an extensive list of treatments. Treatment of airborne allergic symptoms may require all of the following:
1. Medication – For symptomatic control of symptoms.
2. Immunotherapy – Injections of the allergic substances causing your symptoms, allowing your immune system to build blocking antibodies.
3. Environmental Control – Changing your environment to lessen your exposure to those allergic substances which are harmful to you.
