Dr. Margaret L. Soderberg M.D.'s Expert Contributions
  • Can bed bugs cause an allergic reaction?

    Yes, bedbugs could have most definitely caused this rash. Examine your mattress because mattresses are often a hiding place for these creatures. Sincerely, Margaret L. Soderberg, M.D., FACAAI READ MORE

  • Are there any dietary recommendations for celiac besides avoiding glutenous foods?

    The only recommendation is complete avoidance of gluten containing foods. Sincerely, Margaret L. Soderberg, M.D., FACAACI READ MORE

  • Do antihistamines cause excessive sleepiness?

    Yes, antihistamines can cause drowsiness. Benadryl especially causes this. The newer antihistamines (second generation) such as Claritin or Allegra, have less of a tendency to do this. Respectfully submitted, Margaret L. Soderberg, M.D., FACAAI READ MORE

  • How does allergy immunotherapy work?

    Allergy immunotherapy has been perfected over the years. Allergy sensitivity can be determined by specific reactivity of the allergy antibody to pollens, molds, and certain foods. For those people who have allergic rhinitis (hayfever) and those who have allergic asthma, immunotherapy is the closest treatment to a cure that we have. Relief of symptoms can improve by 80%. The shots build a blocking antibody which interferes with the specific allergic reaction and also trigger memory cells in the beginning. The process is lengthy with injections being given once or twice weekly for the first 6 months and then proceeding to every 2 weeks and, for many, eventually monthly intervals. Respectfully submitted, Margaret L. Soderberg, M.D., FACAAIBoard Certified READ MORE

  • Is poor immunity a heriditary problem?

    There are specific hereditary immunodeficiency syndromes, most of which present in early childhood. Infectious diseases can attack the immune system, e.g., AIDS. In your case, if you have had recurrent infections throughout your life, this could possibly be related to allergies. Sincerely, Margaret L. Soderberg, M.D., FACAAIBoard Certified READ MORE

  • Is there any way at all to get rid of allergies forever?

    If your allergies are seasonal, allergy skin testing could identify specifically what your sensitivities are. Then an allergy specialist could discuss the possibility of immunotherapy as a treatment.(allergy shots). Immunotherapy is the closest “cure” we have thus far. Certain forms of sublingual immunotherapy are an option too. If you haven’t seen an Allergy specialist, you should. READ MORE

  • Is lactose intolerance treatable?

    Lactose intolerance is the absence of the enzyme lactase. It can be managed easily by taking lactase tablets before meals containing milk. There are also specially treated milk products available. It most likely will be a life-long condition which one has to be aware of and easily manage. READ MORE

  • Is it true that kids born out of a C-section have poor immunity?

    No, their immune system should be normal for age. READ MORE

  • Why am I having issues with my breathing around paint?

    Fresh paint usually has a chemical odor to it, especially if it’s an oil based paint. I would say that this is an irritant which provokes sensitive airways rather than an allergic provocation. READ MORE

  • How effective are lactase enzyme tablets?

    Lactose intolerance is not regarded as an allergy. The lactase tablets are effective in diminishing the gas generated by lactose in those who have the deficiency. READ MORE

  • is my allergy anaphylactic

    A reaction is anaphylactic if your airway is compromised I.e.if your throat swells & you can't breathe. READ MORE

  • Should I get a flu shot?

    If you have asthma or any respiratory condition, yes--you should get a flu shot. READ MORE
