The Philadelphia Center for Treatment of Aspirin Allergy

Asprin Allergy - Asthma and Allergy Specialists

Aspirin, also known as salicylic acid, is one of the most common over the counter medications taken for fever, pain, and the prevention of heart disease.  For most persons with asthma, taking aspirin has no effect. However, for some persons with asthma, ingesting aspirin can cause the asthma to worsen and exacerbate nasal and sinus congestion.  

The Philadelphia Center for the Treatment of Aspirin Allergy treats patients with aspirin allergy or sensitivity.  William Spiegel, MD, Director of the Philadelphia Center for the Treatment of Aspirin Allergy, manages the desensitization of aspirin sensitive asthmatic patients in a safe, controlled medical setting.
