Giving Back to Veterans in Need

In the past few days, Barbara Smith, the administrative assistant for A&AS has crisscrossed the area delivering much need gifts and supplies to the area’s veterans and their families in need.

A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO OUR PATIENTS FOR MAKING THESE DONATIONS POSSIBLE! A&AS would also like to thank the COLBROOKDALE POLICE DEPARTMENT SHOP WITH A COP program who donated a significant supply of goods and gifts.

Donations at the first stop included baby supplies, toiletries, toys and food gift certificates for two homeless veterans and their children.

At the next visit, Barbara delivered toiletries and gifts to 4 families of women vets with 7 children in total struggling to stay in their homes.

The third delivery was to a disabled veteran and his wife and 2 children. They received toiletries, a PS4 game and art supplies for the children and a selection of gift cards.

At the fourth visit, Barbara delivered gifts to an 88-year-old Korean War veteran and his wife. They received a new toaster oven, new bedding and pillows, toiletries and assorted gift cards.

She next visited the Horsham Naval base to meet with the group that assists Air National Guard families in need. There she donated to 3 families with 7 children clothing, holiday gifts for the children, baby supplies, toiletries and gift cards to each family.

At the final stop, an SUV full of donations went to the main house of Support Homeless Veterans, Inc near Temple campus. With the help of residents, Anthony Brown and Anthony Miller (pictured with Barbara), boxes of toiletries, kitchen supplies, clothing including winter coats, towels, and gifts were unloaded.

Is Your Asthma Under Control?

How can you tell if your asthma is uncontrolled? As an experienced allergist explains in this video from the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, you can determine whether you need to see an allergist about your asthma by using the “rule of two.” If you’re needing to use your rescue inhaler more than twice a week—and not when you’re exercising or otherwise physically exerting yourself—or if you find yourself waking up in the night as a result of your asthma, it’s time to contact an allergist.

Allergy & Asthma Specialists SM works to provide all of our patients with the capable care and effective asthma treatment they deserve. If you’d like to learn more about our services, call 1(800)86-COUGH to reach one of our locations near Collegeville, Pottstown, King of Prussia, Jenkintown, Blue Bell, Lansdale, Philadelphia, and Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

Avoiding Allergy Triggers While Housecleaning

If you have allergies, it’s important for you to find effective ways to prevent your symptoms from being triggered while you’re cleaning your home. Avoid using commercial cleaners that use harsh chemicals such as ammonia or formaldehyde. Instead, opt for non-toxic cleaners such as mixtures that use baking soda and vinegar. To reduce the amount of dust in your home—and make cleaning less symptomatic—make it a goal to keep clutter off your floors, wipe down counter surfaces, vacuum your carpets weekly, and change blankets, throw rugs, and bed linen as frequently as possible.

Allergy & Asthma Specialists SM provides state-of-the-art allergy testing and treatment for the entire family. Our goal is to help you find relief from your symptoms so you can get back to enjoying your life again. To set up a consultation, call 1(800)86-COUGH, extension 2. We have conveniently located offices in Blue Bell, Lansdale, Philadelphia, Jenkintown, Pottstown, King of Prussia, and Collegeville, Pennsylvania.

Allergy-Free Play Dough Ideas

Dealing with any allergy in children can be a challenge, and many parents find that managing food allergies in kids is particularly troublesome. One reason for this is that there are at least trace amounts of common food allergens in many of the processed foods that line the country’s grocery store shelves. Another hurdle for parents it that, for some individuals, simply coming into contact with a food allergen can be enough to trigger symptoms. For this reason, if your child was recently diagnosed with food allergies by her allergy doctor, then it’s important to be vigilant about what your child both touches and eats.

Play-Doh and Wheat Allergies

The exact ingredients in the popular modeling toy called Play-Doh are proprietary, but the Hasbro Company does warn parents that their Play-Doh products contain wheat. For this reason, it may be a smart idea to keep this toy out of the hands of a child who has a wheat allergy or sensitivity. If your kid is a fan of Play-Doh, then don’t worry, because there are alternatives for you to try. The following are some allergy-free play dough ideas from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology:

Cornstarch Play Dough

  • Cornstarch
  • Baking soda
  • Water
  • Oil
  • Food coloring

Edible Play Dough

  • Powdered sugar
  • Corn syrup
  • Margarine
  • Vanilla
  • Salt
  • Food coloring

Rice Play Dough

  • Rice flour
  • Salt
  • Cream of tartar
  • Water
  • Oil
  • Vanilla extract
  • Food coloring or sparkles

Before using any of these recipes, it’s important for parents to carefully review all ingredients and ingredient labels to ensure that they meet all allergy safety criteria for their child. You can find the complete recipes for these allergy-free play doughs by clicking here.

The team of board-certified asthma doctors and allergists at Allergy & Asthma Specialists SM offer food allergy testing in Philadelphia, Blue Bell, King of Prussia, Jenkintown, Doylestown, Lansdale, Pottstown, and Collegeville, Pennsylvania. You can schedule your appointment by visiting us online or calling 1(800)86-COUGH.
