Dr. Nejad, our board-certified Allergist and Immunologist, provides comprehensive allergy care to both adults and children in the Baltimore region. Allergic reactions in the nasal passages are a common cause of inflammation in the nose and sinus linings. Surprisingly, many individuals suffering from chronic sinusitis do not have environmental allergies, despite years of taking allergy medications. To address this, it’s crucial to accurately identify any allergens that may contribute to nasal and sinus issues.

At our clinic, we conduct thorough allergy testing to pinpoint specific allergens affecting our patients. This may include skin prick tests to identify reactions to common environmental triggers like pollen, dust mites, pet dander, and molds. We also offer blood tests for allergen-specific IgE, which can help identify allergies when skin testing is not possible.

Based on the results of these tests, Dr. Nejad can develop a personalized treatment plan that may include avoidance strategies, medications such as antihistamines and nasal corticosteroids, and immunotherapy. Immunotherapy, available as allergy shots or sublingual tablets, is designed to gradually reduce the patient’s sensitivity to allergens.

Understanding and treating these allergies is pivotal for the effective long-term management of sinus and nasal conditions, ensuring tailored and effective care for each patient. This meticulous approach helps patients achieve better control over their symptoms and significantly improves their quality of life.
