Allergy Testing

Cure Your Allergies, Don’t Just Treat Them!

One out of every three people have allergies.  Finding out what you are allergic to is an important first step to effective allergy treatment. Allergy testing can identify the specific things that trigger your allergic reactions, allowing you to be free from having to take antihistamines long-term, which some studies show can be harmful to the body.

Allergy Testing With The Skin-Prick Test

Tiny amounts of various allergens will be applied to your skin (usually on your arm) to see which types cause a reaction. 

If you are allergic to one of the allergens, you will have redness and swelling at the test spot. 

Is Allergy Testing Painful?

Skin tests have little or no pain. Positive reactions can cause itching red bumps that look and feel like mosquito bites. The itching and bumps generally diminish in just a few short minutes or hours. 

When Will Results Be Available?

Results are available within 15 minutes of the in-office allergy test. 

Does medicine interfere with allergy skin tests?

Some medicines do interfere with allergy skin tests. Our providers will review this list with you before testing begins

What allergies can be determined by testing?

Our 72-antigen panel tests for a variety of grasses, molds, mites, weeds, trees, and foods such as whole wheat, peanuts, milk, tomatoes, corn, and eggs

Treatment – No shots!

Sublingual immunotherapy, often called allergy drops, works like allergy shots by gradually helping your body build tolerance to the antigens or substance(s) that cause your allergies. The difference is that the antigen is placed under your tongue in a customized liquid form. 

Most patients will require 1 or 2 treatments (12 weeks per treatment protocol)
