Allergies are the immune system’s overreaction to substances that are typically harmless to others. As a result, patients with allergies can potentially suffer a variety of symptoms ranging in severity. The team of allergists in The Woodlands at Texas ENT Specialists can help you manage your condition.
To treat your allergies, the providers at Texas ENT Specialists must first run some tests to definitively identify what is triggering your symptoms. In some cases, you may be able to avoid a specific allergen, particularly if you are only allergic to certain foods or a particular drug. If not, however, we can work on a treatment plan for you.
Here are some of the allergy testing Texas ENT Specialists can provide:
To test if you are allergic to certain environmental elements like pollen, dust mites, or mold, we would inject you with tiny amounts of these allergens and monitor the site.
Our team also offers drug allergy testing, which can be done through a number of methods, including oral testing, patch testing, and a skin prick test.
Food can cause allergies as well, so we can test you for these allergies using a blood test, a skin prick test, or through an elimination diet.
If you are experiencing symptoms caused by an inflammation-related condition like asthma or nasal polyps, biologic or biological therapy can target certain areas of the immune system to prevent inflammation from occurring.
