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....

Food Allergies

Food allergies are an adverse immune response to food protein. Some protein fragments are resistant to digestion and when they are not broken down by the digestive process they are tagged by IgE. This causes the immune system to identify the protein as harmful. The immune system considers the body under attack and an allergic reaction is triggered.

Food allergy reaction can be mild or severe. They can include dermatitis, gastrointestinal distress, and respiratory distress, which can be life threatening in severe cases. Anaphylaxic responses such as biphasic anaphylaxis and vasodilation are severe allergic reactions that require immediate intervention.

Food allergies are typically treated with avoidance and some medications that are designed to minimize the protein allergy reaction. Immunotheraphy involving desensitization is also a method used. The allergy sufferer is exposed to the protein in small increasing doses with the ultimate goal of the immune system becoming desensitized to the protein. Those with extreme food allergies often carry injectable epinephrine in the form of an EpiPen or other delivery device. These emergency devices are used to counteract severe reactions after accidental exposure.
