  • Allergy Skin Testing

    Skin testing is one of the most common and important procedures used to diagnose allergies to environmental allergens (dust mites, molds, pollens and animal danders), foods and medications (antibiotics, topical anesthetics). We utilize two different types of skin tests depending on the patient’s history: skin prick testing and intradermal testing. Skin prick testing utilizes a plastic applicator to scratch the surface of the skin on the back and introduce an allergen in order to see if there is an allergic (hive-like) response after 15-20 minutes. Intradermal testing is a stronger version of allergy testing performed on the arm by introducing a small amount of the allergen under the skin and monitoring for a similar allergic response. Many medications may interfere with skin testing results so it is important to review our medications to stop for allergy testing (insert hyperlink to PDF) prior to your consultation or testing appointment.

  • Allergen Immunotherapy

    Allergen immunotherapy includes allergy shots and, in select cases, FDA-approved allergy tablets administered in order to reduce the body’s allergic response. Allergen immunotherapy is one of the most effective ways to provide relief from allergy symptoms by retraining your immune system to be less reactive to an allergen over time. Our physicians customize the treatment regimen to your specific allergy testing results to ensure a personalized approach designed to give significant and lasting relief from allergies. 

  • Oral immunotherapy (OIT)

    Oral immunotherapy (OIT) involves taking small doses of an allergenic food daily and gradually increasing the dose over time. As the ingested amount of the allergen increases, patients are protected from allergic reactions from accidental ingestions of the allergen. In most cases, the allergen must be eaten daily in order to maintain this desensitized (less reactive) state. In some cases, especially for young children, OIT may help the body overcome a food allergy. CAAC offers OIT for peanuts, tree nuts (cashew/pistachio, walnut/pecan, hazelnut, almond), milk and egg. 

  • Oral Challenges

    Skin and/or blood testing may be used to determine a patient’s risk for allergy. These tests, however, are not perfect and in some cases can produce false positive results. Oral challenges to foods or medications are sometimes needed to definitively prove if a patient is truly allergic or not. Our physicians will oversee the gradual administration of the suspected allergen in a controlled and safe manner while being prepared to treat even the most severe allergic reaction, should one occur.

  • Patch Testing

    Patch testing is used to diagnose allergic contact dermatitis, an allergic skin disorder that presents with red, itchy or dry/scaly skin rash similar to eczema. Common triggers for allergic contact dermatitis include metals, fragrances, preservatives and other chemicals used to give products their designed characteristics. Multiple allergens are tested at once to determine a possible trigger by applying the allergen to a cloth patch that is then taped onto the skin. Patches are removed 48 hours later with an initial reading at that time and final reading 96 hours after placement.  

  • Biologic Drug Administration

    Biologic drugs refer to manufactured antibodies that are designed to target specific areas of the immune system that cause inflammation and unwanted allergic responses. Blocking these unwanted immune responses can result in significant improvement for conditions such as asthma, atopic dermatitis (eczema), urticaria (hives) and eosinophilic esophagitis. Our physicians have expert knowledge about these immunologic pathways and will determine which biologic medications to select for each individual patient. The staff at CAAC are specifically trained for safe and effective administration of biologic medications in our offices.

  • Pulmonary Function Testing

    Measuring lung function as well as responses to inhaled medications is an essential step in diagnosing and managing respiratory disorders such as asthma. Our providers are fellowship-trained to be able to confidently treat even the most severe forms of asthma. CAAC has recently invested in the most advanced pulmonary function testing equipment to enhance the care we provide to our patients. This includes both our in-office devices as well as the ability to offer Aluna home spirometry, which allows patients to measure lung function at home and share in real-time with our providers.
