Whether patients have asthma, seasonal allergies, or other related conditions, we provide expert care and effective treatments to improve quality of life.
Allergy testing and treatments are available through our Allergy Service and Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Service.
Comprehensive Allergy Testing and Treatment
Allergies are among the most common health problems, with more than 50 million Americans afflicted with asthma, seasonal hay fever, or other allergy-related conditions each year.
Some allergies, such as a mild case of hay fever, might not require any treatment or can be controlled with the occasional use of over-the-counter medications. Others can interfere with day-to-day activities, lower quality of life, or even become life-threatening.
Through our multidisciplinary approach, UT Southwestern offers expertise in diagnosis and treatment to allergies, such as those related to:
- Pollens, molds, dust mites, and pets
- Food, drugs, latex, and stinging insects
- Skin disorders, such as atopic and contact dermatitis (eczema), urticaria (hives), and angioedema (welts)
- Chronic sinusitis and allergic rhinitis
Both our Allergy Service and Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Service help patients reduce and even eliminate troublesome symptoms such as:
- Itching eyes, nose, and throat
- Runny nose
- Sore throat
- Teary eyes
After a comprehensive evaluation, our specialists discuss the treatments available for each patient’s specific condition.
Allergies in Children
UT Southwestern Pediatric Group’s allergy experts address the unique allergy needs of children. Through our specialized programs, we evaluate, diagnose, and treat common disorders, such as pediatric sinus disease, and provide focused care for life-threatening or life-altering conditions:
- Our pediatric ear, nose, and throat specialists see children with inhalant allergies, offering immunotherapy, environmental counseling, and allergy medications.

- Our Allergy Program provides testing and diagnosis for an array of allergic conditions.
- The Dallas Eosinophilic GI Diseases and Esophagitis Program (DEEP) manages eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and other eosinophilic GI diseases (EGIDs).

Our Allergy Service offers comprehensive care such as:
- Allergen skin testing
- Pulmonary-function testing
- Advanced anti-immunoglobulin (IgE) therapy
- Drug desensitization therapy for patients who are allergic to medications necessary for their health
To help with diagnosis and allergy evaluation, our specialists are experts at administering food and drug challenges as well as performing laboratory and radiology studies, such as computed tomography (CT) scans of the sinuses or lungs, to determine contributing factors.
For children and adults with serious allergies to insect stings (including fire ants), UT Southwestern provides venom immunotherapy shots to reduce the chance of a life-threatening reaction to a future sting.
We match therapies to patients’ specific profiles and provide the most effective immunotherapy (allergy shots), medications, and other approaches needed to improve health and quality of life.
Our physicians partner with patients in discussing and setting allergen-avoidance strategies that can make an important difference in treatment.
Our ENT specialists also treat conditions such as allergic rhinitis and chronic sinusitis, which could be related to having a deviated septum or other physical obstruction such as nasal polyps.
In addition to counseling patients about how they might be able to reduce their exposure to allergens through lifestyle changes, our specialists prescribe beneficial medications such as short-acting and long-acting antihistamines, nasal corticosteroids, decongestants, eye drops, and other drugs.
