Allergy Testing 2019-04-15T10:24:23-05:00

Allergy Testing If you suffer from allergy symptoms like sneezing and itchy eyes you’re not alone.  As many as 50 million people in the United States are affected by an allergy. At FWHC, we use the Stallergenes Greer Company, which has over a century of allergy immunotherapy expertise. Using their skin testing device, we are able to test for a wide range of allergens, including food.

Allergy immunotherapy (AIT) helps by working with the body’s natural defense system.  AIT slowly trains the immune system to be less sensitive to allergens, so that it doesn’t respond too strongly to them.  This is done by introducing tiny amounts of the allergen to the body over time, slowly getting the immune system used to the allergen.  Then, when the body is exposed to the allergen during normal day-to-day activity, the immune system doesn’t try to attack it. This can mean you may have fewer allergy symptoms.
