What To Expect
We review your detailed history followed by a physical examination. We do baseline pulmonary function testing and discuss a management plan and treatment options.
Skin Testing for Environmental or Food or Medicine or Metal Allergy
You must stop Antihistamines (Allegra, Zyrtec, Benadryl, Claritin, Cold and Cough medicines, Zantac, antihistamine nasal sprays and skin creams) 72-96 hours prior to skin testing. A light meal is recommended.
Allergen Immunotherapy (allergy shots)
Take your antihistamine on the day of your allergy shots or within 24 hours. Do not take a 'beta blocker' or 'ACE-inhibitor' type of high Blood Pressure medicine on the day of your allergy shots.
Pulmonary Function Test
Do not use asthma inhalers 24 hours prior to this test.
No prep needed.
Oral Food and Medicine Challenges
Stop antihistamines for 72-96 hours. The suspect food or medicine is measured, prepared and administered in incremental doses every 20-30 minutes per AAAAI/ACAAI guidelines. Expected office visit is 2-3 hours.
Allergen Immunotherapy (Allergy Shots)
Wait for 30 minutes after your allergy shots are administered. Call us immediately in the rare event you experience systemic symptoms and go to nearest emergency room or call 911.
