Skin testing is a method of testing for allergic antibodies. We will introduce small amounts of suspected allergens into the skin, noting the development of a reaction. The results are read 15- 20 minutes after the application of the allergen. Interpretation of skin tests requires the allergist’s skill in matching the results with the patient’s history of allergy-like symptoms.

We offer a wide range of allergens for testing, including foods and environmental inhalants. What you are tested for will be determined after speaking with our providers, based on your history and symptoms.

Immunotherapy, or allergy injections, is a treatment used to relieve allergy symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever) or allergic asthma by administering injections of substances such as pollen, mold spores, dust mites, animal dander and insects to which an individual has been found to be allergic by skin testing. The injections build up a patient’s immunity to allergens and generally, patients find a substantial reduction of their symptoms and need for medication.

You should consider immunotherapy if you are unable to avoid specific allergens, frequently miss school and work because of symptoms, and/or get inadequate relief from medications or experience troublesome side effects from those medications.
