Food Allergy

Food Allergy Doctor in Virginia

A food allergy is a reaction people have when they encounter certain foods, and this happens because their immune system overreacts to the proteins in that food.

A few of the most common types of food allergies are:

  • Peanut
  • Tree nuts
  • Fish
  • Shellfish
  • Eggs
  • Cow’s milk.

Symptoms of a food allergy include:

  • Rash, or itchy skin
  • Stuffy or itchy noses
  • Watery eyes
  • Vomiting
  • Wheezing
  • Chest tightness
  • Trouble breathing
  • Throat tightness

We can diagnosis this in our office by performing skin testing and develop a treatment plan.
