Allergy and immunology specialists evaluate, diagnose and manage disorders of the immune system. They provide diagnosis and treatment for asthma, eczema, and allergic reactions to drugs, food and insect bites. These specialists also manage patients with immune deficiencies and problems related to autoimmune diseases and organ transplantation.
While there is no cure for allergies, there are treatments that relieve symptoms. Reducing exposure to allergens is the most effective treatment of allergies. If reducing exposure is not feasible or is ineffective, medications such as antihistamines and inhaled or nasal spray steroids may help. In some cases, allergists recommend immunotherapy (allergy shots) to help desensitize patients.
Virtua allergy and immunology specialists see patients at locations throughout Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties of Southern New Jersey.
