The Latest Treatments in Skin Allergy Testing, Immunotherapy, and More
Millions of people who suffer with allergies or heightened sensitivity of their immune system can benefit from allergy testing. In fact, some estimates say that about half the population is allergic to something, whether it is food-related, environmental (dust, pollen, mildew, mold) or chemical in nature.
Allergies also have a strong genetic component. If other members of your family have certain allergies, there is a higher likelihood that you will, too. Symptoms include runny nose, itchy eyes, postnasal drip, nasal congestion, coughing and wheezing. Other less obvious symptoms are headaches, difficulty tasting and smelling, sleep difficulties, tiredness and irritability.
Find out exactly what you are allergic to with our comprehensive allergy testing. Allergy skin testing is an office procedure that takes just a few minutes and can quickly determine what you are allergic to with very little discomfort. We use liquid extracts of common allergens and lightly prick the surface of your skin where the extract is applied. If the skin prick reddens and swells, you are allergic to that specific extract.
We provide food allergy tests, blood tests and food elimination tests. By removing a suspected food from your diet, we can determine what effect it may have on your overall health. We use state-of-the-art skin testing methods for the fastest, most accurate results.
Injection therapy can help your body adjust to the allergens that trigger your symptoms.
Immunotherapy often works when other drug treatments – antihistamines, decongestants, corticosteroids and others available either by prescription or over-the-counter – can typically fail to ease your symptoms. We help you manage and control your allergies so you can enjoy your life.
