Osei-Tutu Dermatology offers Allergy Testing and Allergy Treatment (Immunotherapy/allergy shots).
Allergy Testing is done by applying as many as 70 different substances at once on the surface of the skin and checking for immediate allergic reactions. This simple & pain free testing is done to identify allergies to pollen, mold, pet dander, dust mites and foods.
Allergy shots or immunotherapy is done by injecting small doses of substances that you are allergic to (allergens) under your skin in gradually increasing doses to build up your body's immunity to the allergen(s). Patients will start to notice improvement of symptoms within several weeks but it may take as long as 6-12 months to see significant improvement.
