Adult & Pediatric Allergy Testing Services
At Texan Allergy & Sinus Center, we have the ability to test and treat patients from adults to toddlers as young as two, for up to 58 environmental and seasonal allergens.
Skin Testing for Environmental and Seasonal Allergies
Skin tests involve lightly pricking the skin on the back or forearm with a tiny drop of the liquid allergen. This is not painful. Some patients even think it tickles! After about 20 minutes, we’re able to see the results by measuring the reaction on the skin. This can range from a just a bit of redness to a raised “mosquito bite” looking bump. A raised bump generally indicates an allergic reaction and that treatment may be necessary. We also offer blood tests as an option, but skin tests give same day results and are usually more accurate.
Personalized Allergy Treatment Plans
By determining which allergens affect you, we’ll be able to treat the source of the allergy with either allergy shots or allergy drops. Allergy drops (also known as sublingual immunotherapy) involve daily drops under the tongue, rather than an injection. This process has been used safely for over 100 years with both children and adults.
