In addition to carmine allergy, his research is focused on aspirin exacerbated respiratory disease. Dr. Baldwin has a wide range of clinical interests that include allergic rhinitis, allergies, anaphylaxis, angioedema, asthma, drug allergies, hay fever, hives, immune deficiencies, nasal allergy, nasal polyposis, and sinusitis.
