Put an end to suffering due to allergies!


 

Getting the best allergy testing in Temple, Texas is important for your health.

As you know, we here in central Texas are often battered with pollens and other allergens as the jet stream moves across the United States. 

This can lead to a stuffy nose, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and chronic sinusitis. 

At its worst, allergies in central Texas can lead to dreaded “Cedar Fever.”

The problem is, traditional allergy testing can be quite painful. 

If you have been putting off allergy testing due to the pain, then you will want to try our state-of-the-art allergy testing. 

How Does Allergy Testing Work?

Tradition allergy skin testing involves pricking the skin and putting a diluted solution of the allergen on that point. If the patient has an allergy to the substance, the skin will have a reaction, such as a small bump or redness. 

Blood tests can also be done, but they are more expensive and take longer to generate results.

Easy, Less Painful Allergy Testing

Our allergy testing in Temple is quick and easy. We use the Multi-Test PC 2 from Lincoln Diagnostics for our skin testing. 

This amazing device activates nerve cells to block the pain signals, and then small points deliver the allergen solution to the skin.

Multiple allergens can be tested simultaneously with this device. It is much faster than traditional skin tests.

The best part is that the results from this skin test are very easy to read. 

Sometimes, with traditional skin tests applied individually, it can be difficult to determine whether a real reaction has taken place. The Multi-Test PC 2 provides much clearer results.

Allergy Treatment

Once we have tested you for allergies, we will inform you if we find any positives. Then, we will go over your options for treatment, from lifestyle adjustments to allergy drops.

Depending on the severity of your allergies, we may recommend over-the-counter pills and sprays or prescription medicines.
