You might be asking yourself why the seemingly separate medical conditions of allergy and asthma have been combined as a specialty, but in reality, they are closely related. In fact, the main trigger for asthma is allergies.
We consider ourselves to be the best allergy clinic in Dubai as we not only test for allergies, but have a host of specialists who can treat even non-allergy-related symptoms. Our team is a multidisciplinary partnership including an allergist, dermatologist, dietitian, pulmonologist (lung specialist), ENT (ear, nose, throat and sinus specialist), pediatrician and naturopath, among others.
Whether you have asthma, sinusitis, eczema, or digestive complaints, or you are looking for a pediatric allergy clinic in Dubai for your child, our doctors will identify the underlying cause and work with you to create a treatment plan tailored to your lifestyle.
What is an allergy?
An allergic reaction occurs when your body misinterprets a harmless substance as being harmful, and reacts in an effort to protect you. While the immune system’s job is to defend against detrimental bacteria and viruses, it sometimes develops a sensitivity to innocuous substances such as pollen, grass or cat hair and sees them as a threat. These substances are referred to as allergens, or antigens, and cause the immune system to release a chemical called histamine, resulting in symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion and itchy eyes. To counteract these symptoms, sufferers might take medications called antihistamines.
