Allergy Testing/Immunotherapy
Allergy Testing
  • At Paradise Pediatrics we offer Allergy Testing for our patients!

    • Children must be over the age of 6 in order to participate in allergy testing. For kids younger than 6 years old, we can order bloodwork instead.

DO NOT TAKE ANTIHISTAMINES (claritin, zyrtec, benadryl, singulair, etc.) FOR 1 WEEK PRIOR TO TESTING
Immunotherapy
  • Immunotherapy is offered after allergy testing is completed and results are reviewed by the doctor and patient.
  • Immunotherapy is used as a long-term treatment for allergies that are not well controlled by medications and avoidance measures. 
  • Immunotherapy consists of subcutaneous injections every week to build up the patient's tolerance to their specific allergens.
