Our doctors in Lafayette, LA provide allergy testing and treatment to help with your allergies.
The method of allergy testing, if needed, is determined by the physician upon the clinical exam. Your allergy results will indicate the need for allergy injections / immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is a program of regular injections of increasing amounts of extracts of allergens (organic substances which cause allergies) to which you are sensitive. When sufficient relief of your allergy symptoms can not be achieved with environmental controls and medications, immunotherapy can reduce your sensitivities. It is effective for weeds, trees and grass pollens, dust mites, mold spores and some animal danders. Food allergies should be rotated or eliminated in your diet depending on how allergic you are to the food.
We have several methods of testing available:
