Hives and Angioedema
Dr. Weinstein has a particular interest in conditions that can cause hives and angioedema (swelling). He was awarded the prestigious Clemens von Pirquet award by the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology for his research on urticaria (hives).
Unexplained hives and/or swelling can be very disconcerting. Patients can become consumed with fear of an impending life-threatening reaction without an obvious trigger. Frequently with recurrent episodes of hives or swelling, there is no allergic trigger, but an underlying autoimmune condition or viral infection that causes the reaction. In rare instances, a genetic condition called Hereditary Angioedema can be present. Regardless of the cause, Dr. Weinstein is uniquely qualified to handle even the most difficult to control episodes. Our goal is 100% suppression of hives and we will not rest until you are comfortable. To learn more about these conditions, give us a call and set up an appointment today.
