Frequently Asked Allergy Questions:
What is an allergen? An allergen is something you are allergic to. Most are inhaled or ingested (swallowed).
What is immunotherapy? Immunotherapy is treatment which results in immunity to something. Vaccines are a common type of immunotherapy.
What do you test for? We test and treat for a number of different trees, molds, animal dander, weeds and grasses.
Do you test for food allergies? Yes, we have the ability to test for a variety of foods including peanut, shrimp, milk, egg, corn and whole wheat. These are some of the most common food allergens.
Do you treat food allergies? We do not offer immunotherapy for foods. You can control what goes into your mouth, but not what you breathe. Thus, we only treat for inhaled allergens.
How long do I get treatment? Treatment duration depends on the severity of your allergies, how often treatment is received and which type of treatment is chosen. Treatment of your allergies is a commitment; the better you follow the doctor's directions, the faster your body will respond.
Do I have to have shots each week? There are two ways to achieve immunity to allergens: injections and sublingual drops. Shots are given each week. If weeks are skipped, your immunity will take much longer than it would otherwise. Sublingual drops are an easy way to avoid shots and time in the doctor's office. These are taken under the tongue, once per day, at home.
