Pierre-Alain Dauby, M.D. FAAAAI
Dr. Dauby treats children and adults of all ages.
Allergy drops, also called sublingual immunotherapy, are a convenient way to effectively treat allergies. This treatment involves administering drops under the tongue at home, so this form of treatment is ideal for people who don't like needles or have limited time to go to the doctor's office. Similar to allergy shots, allergy drops target the underlying cause of allergies (vs medications which just cover up the symtpoms). Dr. Dauby also offers other home allergy treatments, to include Oralair, Grastek, and Ragwitek.
For environmental and insect allergies. In addition to the standard dose escalation regimens, Dr. Dauby also offers RUSH protocols which allow patients to save time and reach effective doses of allergy shots much more quickly than traditional regimens.
For the evaluation of environmental, food, insect, and drug allergies.
Food challenges are used in tandem with skin and blood tests for the evaluation of food allergies. This includes oral challenges with infants 4-6 months of age to see if peanuts can be safely introduced.
For the evaluation of respiratory problems (shortness of breath, wheezing, cough) and monitoring of asthma
For the evaluation of contact dermatitis, such as a sensitivity to a frangrance, preservatives in cosmetics or shampoos, as well as various chemicals found in clothing shoes and many other types of products used in our everyday life. Dr. Dauby is one of only a few allergist in the Pittsburgh area to offer comprehensive patch testing (over 65 allergens) for the evaluation of contact dermatitis. He also specializes in metal testing for the evaluation of sensitivities to jewelry as well as metal implants used in orthopedic surgeries and other medical procedures.
