Types of tests

  • Scratch and Interdermal Testing: Purified extracts with environmental and food allergens are placed on or under the skin and are observed for a localized allergic reaction.
  • Food and Drug Challenges: Increasing amounts of a suspected food or medication are administered under close supervision for any possible adverse reaction.
  • Immunotherapy: The administration of “allergy shots” involves gradual increasing treatment with specific customized environmental allergen vaccine to decrease allergic sensitivity over time. Often misunderstood as "medication," this therapy works with your own immune system to induce immunologic tolerance to the environmental allergens in the vaccine.
  • Spirometry: Computerized testing of pulmonary function to both diagnose and monitor asthma.
