Could Your Symptoms Indicate Immune Deficiency?

Do you suffer from frequent infections? If so, immune deficiency could be to blame. Because immune deficiency often mimics allergy and asthma symptoms, an allergy doctor can diagnose and treat you for immune deficiency. Here is what you need to know.

There are several symptoms of immune deficiency, including having sinusitis, ear infections, or pneumonia more than three times annually and needing multiple courses of antibiotics to clear infections. Weight loss, swollen lymph nodes, chronic rashes, chronic diarrhea, and a family history of immune deficiency may also indicate a problem.

At Allergy & Asthma Specialists, we can determine the cause of your symptoms using allergy testing and begin appropriate treatment, including immunological replacement and antibiotics, and treatment of underlying conditions that make you more prone to infection, like allergic rhinitis.
