Allergy

If you suffer from allergies or asthma, specialists at UT Southwestern Medical Center offer tests and treatments that can make an important difference in your life.

We offer expertise in allergy and asthma diagnosis and treatment related to:

  • Pollens, molds, dust mites, and pets
  • Food, drugs, latex, and stinging insects
  • Skin disorders, such as atopic and contact dermatitis (eczema), urticaria (hives), and angioedema (welts)
  • Additional conditions, including allergic rhinitis

Comprehensive Allergy Testing and Treatment

UT Southwestern’s allergy program offers comprehensive allergen skin testing, pulmonary-function testing, advanced anti-immunoglobulin (IgE) therapy, and drug desensitization therapy for patients who are allergic to medications necessary for their health.

To help with diagnosis and allergy evaluation, our specialists are experts at administering food and drug challenges as well as performing laboratory and radiology studies, such as computed tomography (CT) scans of the sinuses or lungs to determine contributing factors.

For children and adults with serious allergies to insect stings (including fire ants), UT Southwestern provides venom immunotherapy shots to reduce the chance of a life-threatening reaction to a future sting.

Our specialists are experts at matching therapies to patients’ specific profiles and providing the most effective immunotherapy (allergy shots), medications, and other approaches needed to improve health and quality of life.

Our physicians partner with patients in discussing and setting allergen-avoidance strategies that can make an important difference in treatment.
