ALLERGY TESTING

Did you know that 50 million Americans have allergies? In fact, allergies are the 5th most common chronic disease in the United States. A person’s quality of life is usually greatly affected by their allergies.

Should you get an allergy test?

Allergy testing confirms the presence of antibodies to allergens in your system. Going to an allergy doctor will help you decide whether you need to get an allergy test. A good allergy specialist will always match up your history to a suspected allergy. In this way, the most effective allergy treatment can be recommended to you.

Allergy testing is nearly painless! During a Skin Prick Allergy Test, a tiny amount of an allergen is placed under the skin with a small plastic device. Many allergens are tested at the same time. The whole process takes about an hour. We will test for weeds, trees, grasses, molds, pet dander, dust mites, cockroaches, insect bites, and animals.

 

Anderson Allergy & Asthma proudly offers allergy testing and allergy treatment including immune therapy through allergy shots and SLIT allergy drops for patients!

FOOD ALLERGIES

Did you know that 12 million Americans have a food allergy, including 4.1 million children? Food allergy testing has shown that a few common foods cause 90% of all food allergies: cow’s milk, soy, wheat, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds, fish, and shellfish. Young children are especially prone to food allergies.

How do we test for food allergies?

We test using a Skin Prick Test or a blood test. Our allergy specialist may recommend blood tests for food allergy testing if a skin prick test would be too risky, if you have other skin problems, or if you take certain medications.

IMMUNOTHERAPY

Immunotherapy is the only allergy treatment that offers long-term relief from allergy symptoms. After your allergy testing is complete, we will let you know which allergy treatment we recommend to relieve your symptoms.

We offer two types of immunotherapy treatments in our office: allergy shots and a sublingual therapy called SLIT therapy.

Immunotherapy Injections, or allergy shots, desensitize your body to the allergens that cause your immune system to react. The injections contain pure, diluted concentrations of pollens and other allergens. The doses are increased slowly over time, so that your immune system safely becomes desensitized to the allergens. 

At Anderson Allergy & Asthma, we mix our own treatments for hay fever and other allergies on a per-patient basis.

You can expect your immunotherapy to require a visit to the allergy clinic weekly at first, then every 2 weeks, 3 weeks, and finally once per month. The average person can expect this allergy treatment to remain effective for 10 to 15 years after the allergy shots have been stopped.

ASTHMA RELIEF

Orlando asthma relief for adults and children.

Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT Therapy) involves putting drops of allergen extracts under your tongue. SLIT drops have been used in Europe for over 40 years and have a long record of safe and effective use by allergy sufferers.

Sublingual drops for allergies are much more convenient (and just as effective) as allergy shots, and it is needle free!

Adverse reactions to SLIT treatment are extremely rare and milder compared to injection immunotherapy. Because the risks are low, patients can safely self-administer their sublingual drops at home.
