At Paradise Pediatrics we offer Allergy Testing for our patients!
If you would like Allergy Testing, please call our office to set up an appointment with Dr. Southerland.
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 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.
