Dr. Dwayne E. Rollins, Md.
Dr. Rollins is an excellent doctor. He took the time to discuss my allergies/sinus issues, in addition to even showing me a diagram of what was going on with my sinuses. Most doctors don't take the time to explain in detail, but he was really thorough. My sinus related issues are finally subsiding thanks to Dr. Rollins. An intelligent and compassionate doctor who does his work with skill and grace. His office reflects him, well-run and reasonable. I Would highly recommend him! Thank you, Dr. Rollins.... Dr. Rollins is incredibly knowledgeable and answers all questions asked of him in a way that is understandable to patients. I couldn't be more pleased. His staff is pleasant and incredibly helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Rollins.... I had the pleasure to visit Dr. Rollins today for the first time regarding an ongoing congestion issue. He was very thorough, informative, very pleasant and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Rollins to anyone who needs to see an ENT....

ALLERGY TO FISH

Fish is one of the most common causes of food allergy, particularly in adults and in Scandinavian countries. Fish may find their way into processed foods in raw, powder or oil form. In the majority of instances, this substance is clearly labeled as “fish” or with another obvious descriptor. However, fish allergens may be go unlisted if added as part of an oil. Fish products are not usually hidden ingredients but can go unspecified in Caesar salad dressing or in Worcestershire sauce if it contains anchovies.

Some seafood flavors (e.g., shrimp) are added to food in the form of a powder manufactured from the seafood’s shell. Shrimp antigen II is heat stable. A variety of antigens are shared by several crustaceans including shrimp, prawns, crabs, lobsters and crayfish (crawfish). These antigens are not eradicated by cooking.

At present, some manufacturers are researching the possibility of adding fish meal (flour) to bread as a source of omega-3-fatty acids (personal communication, M. M. Melnyczuk). Skin prick tests and RASTs indicate extensive cross-reactivity among fish species, but recent research suggests that patients may be able to consume some species of fish despite positive test responses to one or two. However, it is generally recommended that patients allergic to fish avoid all fish species. An epicutaneous test can confirm a fish allergy.
