ATTENTION UNITED HEALTHCARE (UHC) PATIENTS.  Many of you have received a letter from UHC stating that Dr. Villareal will no longer be an Allergy/Immunology provider starting January 2015.  This is incorrect.  This occurred because Dr. Villareal is a volunteer faculty at the Allergy/Immunology clinic at UC Health - University Hospital.  Apparently UC Health and United Health Care are negotiating their contracts and have not yet agreed, and since Dr. Villareal is one the faculty providers at UC Health you received the letter even though the contracts do not apply to the Fragge Allergy & Asthma Clinics contracts.  We would like to assure you that our Allergy/Immunology practice is still a United Health Care provide

Grass Pollen Allergy Tablets
Do you have severe grass pollen allergies? This presents as sneezing, runny nose, itching and swelling of the eyes and nasal stuffiness usually in mid-May here in the Cincinnati-NKY area.

Are you aware that one can receive sublingual immunotherapy tablets to treat grass and ragweed pollen allergies. This treatment is like receiving allergy injections, which allows one to develop an immunity or
immune tolerance to allergies, but now available in tablet form.

To attain that benefit one must start oral allergen immunotherapy tablets about 12 weeks prior to the specific pollen season. Grastek or Oralair for grass pollen oral immunotherapy tablets may be of benefit to you if you. These winter months would be about the right time to get started for the mid-May grass pollen allergies.

Egg Allergy and the Flu Shot

It is a misconception that those with egg allergies cannot get the flu shot.  The CDC has recommendations on what to do if for those with egg allergies and need to get the flu shot.  Learn more at

What are the typical Allergy Symptoms?

Allergies affect about 20% of the general population.  Allergy symptoms vary depending on the organ system involved or the degree of one’s allergic sensitivity.  Hay fever or Allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis affect the nose and eyes of which itchy nose and eyes, profuse runny nose and watery eyes, sneezing, nasal blockage, and sinus headaches are the typical symptoms. 

When an individual has allergic asthma, they can have symptoms of coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness or congestion when exposed to air-borne allergens.

Patients who have food allergies develop generalized hives and itching, swelling, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and can even develop asthma symptoms when they ingest allergenic foods.  In severe cases of food allergies, a drop of blood pressure, or severe swelling causing closure of the airways can potentially cause death.  This are called anaphylactic shock or angioedema, respectively.
