Allergy Related Websites

Do you have dry Winter skin or skin allergies? Would you like to find out more about your allergy and asthma symptoms with the virtual allergist (an interactive symptom checker)?  Or, would like to watch videos of AAAAI experts talk about what they would do if they had food allergy, asthma and other conditions? The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology can answer these questions and more.

The National Allergy Bureau™ (NAB™) is the section of the AAAAI’s Aeroallergen Network responsible for reporting current pollen and mold spore levels. The Aeroallergen Network is comprised of pollen and spore counting stations staffed primarily by AAAAI member volunteers who generously donate their time and expertise. The NAB currently provides the most accurate and reliable pollen and mold levels from approximately 85 counting stations throughout the United States, two counting stations in Canada, and two counting stations in Argentina. The stations use air sampling equipment to collect airborne pollen and spores which are then examined microscopically. This information is also used for research to aid in the diagnosis, treatment and management of allergic diseases. Pollen counts from the NAB stations are based on actual counts, which reflect the real day to day weather events. Predicted counts reported on many websites may be based on pollen data from previous years and general weather forecasts.

Check up on the best health plans:  The ACAAI has introduced a consumer checklist for evaluating allergy & asthma benefits in health plans. If you have allergies or asthma and will be enrolling in a health plan or have an annual open enrollment period for changing plans, you can use this checklist for comparing plan benefits and asking questions.
