An allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction of the immune system to a stimulus, such as dust, pollen, grass, pet dander, mold, etc. The immune system senses that is being attacked by an allergen in the environment and mounts an exaggerated response to fight back.
Skin allergies are some of the most common, difficult to treat, and costly skin problems. Allergies can affect individuals of all ages, and constitute an important cause of disability.
Florida Skin Center offers Allergy Testing as an important tool to identify possible allergens causing dermatologic symptoms of this systemic disease. The test is painlessly done in our offices and provides allergy results in only fifteen minutes.
Once the allergens are identified, our partnership with AllerVision allows you to initiate immunotherapy, a revolutionary long term allergy solution achieved with the use of sublingual drops, in the comfort of your own home. FSC provides close supervision during treatment and most patients start experiencing noticeable results in just a few weeks.
Please let us know if you would like additional information about allergies at your next visit and we will be happy to discuss all the benefits that allergy testing and sublingual immunotherapy have to offer.
