How Allergy Tests are Performed

Allergy tests are performed by injecting a small amount of the allergen into your arm and monitoring the reaction. We suggest that patients allow up to two hours for their allergy skin testing to be completed.

Benefits of Allergy Testing

  • Identify the source of your suffering
  • Accurately diagnose your condition
  • Treat more than just your symptoms
  • Develop a personalized plan to eliminate your symptoms

How do allergy shots work?

Allergy shots, also referred to as immunotherapy, are an injection that contains a small dose of the item to which you are allergic. You’ll receive the injections in your upper arm(s) once a week initially. As you move through the therapy, the potency of the allergen used in the dose will increase. Eventually the space between your injections will decrease, and you’ll only receive a maintenance dose once a month. As you move through the escalation stages, you’ll feel an improvement in your allergy symptoms — and they may even disappear.

Who Is a Candidate for Allergy Shots?

During your visit to Orlando ENT and Allergy, we can determine if you are a candidate for allergy shots or if a different allergy treatment would be a better fit for your lifestyle. Our immunotherapy candidates are usually those who have chronic allergies with symptoms that last for more than three months each year.

Your Allergy Shot Experience

Allergy shots are an injection that will be administered once a week initially. As you begin to build a tolerance to the allergen, the potency of your injection will gradually increase. Eventually the goal is for you to require less frequent doses. Eventually the doses will be spread out to be every 2-4 weeks, then once a month. Through the process you will begin to feel relief from your allergies, and they ultimately may disappear. You may have some side effects from the shots, such as redness or swelling at the injection site.

Biologic Therapy

At Orlando ENT and Allergy, we offer biologic therapy to patients across the Orlando area. Biological therapy is one of the latest advancements in the treatment of chronic inflammatory conditions.

Biologic medications are able to target certain components of the immune system to reduce inflammation. These treatments can be used for conditions such as asthma, nasal polyps, chronic rhinosinusitis, and certain skin conditions like eczema and hives.

How Biologic Therapy Works

Biologics are targeted against certain things that cause inflammation in your system. They are not steroids. Biologic therapy uses the body’s immune system to help reduce inflammation. These treatments use monoclonal antibodies to target other antibodies, molecules, and cell receptors that drive inflammation. This inflammation can cause a variety of chronic illnesses that can impact daily life. Because biologic therapy targets specific parts of the immune system, it does not suppress the entire immune system like steroids do.

Biologic therapy is administered intravenously or with an injection. The way in which it is administered specifically for you will depend on the medication required.

Who Is a Candidate for Biologic Therapy?

Biologics are medications that help control allergic conditions like asthma and eczema in individuals that don’t respond to typical therapies like topical steroids. 

At Orlando ENT and Allergy, we will determine if you are an ideal candidate for biologic therapy. Our staff will evaluate your condition and symptoms to decide if biologic therapy is the best fit for you. If you’re not a candidate, we will recommend a different option. 

Your Biologic Therapy Experience

Before administering biologic therapy, our staff will review your symptoms and decide which type of medication will work best. The therapy can be given in the form of an injection or intravenously. We offer injections and intravenous treatments in our offices.

Asthma Management

Asthma can be challenging. In some people, it develops in childhood and stays with them their entire life, but some don’t develop asthma until they are adults. There are environmental triggers that can make it worse. Don’t let asthma hold you back! Our providers can help you identify your triggers and create a plan to help you avoid and manage them.

What Is Asthma?

Asthma is a medical condition in which the airways become inflamed and excess mucus is produced. When the airways become inflamed, they can become more narrow — which makes breathing challenging. Those with asthma can experience frequent bouts of coughing and wheezing, as well as chest tightness or pain. Asthma patients can also experience sleep disturbance due to coughing and shortness of breath. Asthma patients experience “attacks” in which their symptoms become worse and breathing becomes even more difficult. Because asthma has no cure, the key to managing the condition is to limit the frequency and the severity of the attacks.

Who Is Prone to Asthma?

Factors that play a role in the development of asthma include family history, allergies, viral respiratory infections, occupational exposures, smoking, air pollution and obesity.

Hives and Eczema

Hives are raised itchy bumps that appear and disappear quickly. Our providers can help you identify triggers for your hives. These conditions are both triggered by the immune system and produce rash-like symptoms. Understanding treatment options for your hives or eczema is important.

Treatment Methods

Hives Treatment Methods

Antihistamines can help control some of the symptoms of your hives.  When hives are not controlled with antihistamines, our providers will discuss the option of biologic therapy with her patients. 

Eczema Treatment Methods

  • Avoiding rough fabric or tight clothing
  • Keeping the skin moist
  • Using topical steroids and other topical medications
  • Patting dry after bathing
  • Using soap substitutes
  • When the intense itch associated with eczema is not controlled with these measures, our providers will discuss the possibility of biologic therapy with you.
