Allergies Specialist

Up to 30% of Americans have allergies, and many of them don’t know what causes their allergic reactions. Our highly experienced internist at Pure Medicine, located in Frisco, Texas, offers comprehensive treatment for your allergy symptoms.


How do allergies develop?

Allergies develop when your immune system creates antibodies to attack substances that are not harmful to most people. When this occurs, your immune system overreacts and releases histamines, causing an allergic reaction to particular allergens, such as dust, pet dander or certain foods.

What are the common symptoms of allergies?

Common symptoms differentiate depending on the type of allergy. You may experience different, and sometimes multiple, symptoms for food, insect, drug-related, or environmental allergies.

Food allergy symptoms

  • Swelling of the lips, tongue, face or throat
  • Tingling sensation in mouth and tongue
  • Hives

Insect allergy symptoms

  • Massive swelling on area where bitten or stung
  • Hives
  • Coughing
  • Tightness in the chest
  • Wheezing or shortness of breath

Drug allergy symptoms

  • Hives
  • Rashes on body
  • Facial swelling
  • Wheezing or shortness of breath

Environmental allergy symptoms

  • Itchy and watery eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Sore or scratchy throat

Using skin and blood samples, our team provides customized treatment plans to reduce your painful symptoms.


What are my treatment options for allergies?

Once your allergens are identified, in some instances you can simply avoid them. However, since that’s not always possible, our team provides a wide-range of treatment options, including:

  • Pills (liquid or solid)
  • Nasal sprays
  • Eye drops
  • Topicals
