ASSESSMENT AND PLAN:
1.  The patient has perennial and seasonal allergic rhinitis with conjunctivitis. She also has mixed asthma, primarily extrinsic. She has food allergies to the aforementioned foods. The patient will avoid fruits and all nuts. The patient will carry Benadryl. I also gave her an EpiPen to use if she has an allergic reaction that was associated with difficulty breathing or lightheadedness.
2.  She also has atopic dermatitis. I gave her some Lidex E to be applied b.i.d. p.r.n. to erythematous dermatitis.  She has mite covers on her bedding.  I prescribed Allegra D 24 hours 1 p.o. daily p.r.n. and Patanol drops 1 each eye b.i.d. p.r.n. I also gave her a prescription for albuterol 2 inhalations q.i.d. p.r.n. wheezing and tightness in her chest. I told her that if she started to use this regularly, more than once or twice a day, she is to call me.

I plan to see her in June for followup evaluation of her regular allergies. I plan to bring her in earlier for local anesthetic testing. In the meanwhile, I have ordered a RAST to latex, bananas, kiwi, cherries, melons, avocado, and chestnut. The patient’s spirometry ordered and reviewed by me today was within normal limits.
