Allergy Treatments

There are two main methods of testing for allergies: skin testing and blood testing. The skin test method is preferred because it is cost effective and offers immediate, accurate results. Blood tests are an appropriate alternative for individuals who have a medical condition that prevents them from undergoing skin testing.

This test is performed under close medical supervision and involves eating small amounts of a food that may cause an allergic reaction. An allergist will monitor your health closely for signs of a reaction to confirm or rule out a food allergy.

Yes! You can have a skin or blood test to evaluate for a food allergy. Depending on the result, an oral food challenge may be recommended to definitively rule out a food allergy.

Skin testing is the most common method for evaluating whether you have a penicillin allergy. Depending on the results of the skin test, you may receive an in-clinic oral drug challenge.

Spirometry is a breathing test that evaluates your lung function. It identifies asthma, COPD, and other breathing conditions.

Immunotherapy is an effective allergy relief treatment. Commonly referred to as allergy shots, it involves injecting small amounts of an allergen on a regular basis to build up a tolerance. This is a safe and effective long-term, disease-modifying treatment approach designed to reduce, or even eliminate, your allergy symptoms.

Allergy shots, a form of immunotherapy, are a highly effective, long-term, disease modifying method used to reduce or eliminate allergy symptoms by enabling the body to build up a tolerance to the offending allergen. The proven results are worth the commitment.

Sublingual immunotherapy (also known as allergy drops) is an alternate form of immunotherapy that can be used to reduce or eliminate allergy symptoms in patients who cannot take allergy shots.
