ENT Allergy Clinic

Allergy Skin Testing

The ENT Allergy Clinic tests adults and children (ages 5 years and older) for up to 33 of the areas most common environmental and household allergens.  This test includes both prick & intradermal (under the skin) methods.  The allergens tested include: grasses, trees, weeds, dust mite, animal dander & molds.

Allergy Shots

 

Allergy shots are usually given weekly in the office for the 1st year, every other week for the 2nd year, and every 3 to 4 weeks thereafter.  If taken consistently, shots take a total of 3 to 5 years of treatment to complete therapy.  Symptom improvement may be seen as early as 3 months, but may take up to a year to achieve best results.

Allergy Drops

Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)

 

     SLIT or allergy drops are a safe and effective alternative option to allergy shots.  Daily doses of specially formulated allergy serum are placed under the tongue. 

For patients who may be afraid of shots, or for those who have a busy schedule, SLIT provides the comfort of taking your allergy treatment AT HOME.  It replaces allergy injections in the doctor's office. 

   This treatment is endorsed by the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy.  Sublingual immunotherapy is available to patients as an out-of-pocket expense, however, may be a less expensive option than shots.

 

Testing for Food Allergies

If there is a question about a possible food allergy, a blood test can be performed to determine food sensitivity.  Most foods can be tested, but 95% of all food allergies are usually due to just a few foods.
