Allergy Testing Services for Canton Residents

Allergy testing rules out or confirms an illness. Our doctor for allergies uses testing to diagnose and develop treatment plans.

Our allergy testing services for Canton residents include:

  • Patch testing diagnoses allergic eczema or dermatitis. We apply patches on the skin and remove them 48 hours later. The patch testing site reading continues after 72-96 hours.
  • Skin prick testing injects small amounts of natural allergens. If the skin has a mark similar to a mosquito bite, you have an allergy. Skin allergy testing returns results in one day. The test is non-invasive but may cause mild discomfort.
  • Blood tests take approximately a week.
  • Seasonal allergy testing relates to pollen, grasses, trees, and weeds.
  • Environmental allergy testing includes various irritants. Some include pets, dust, mold, stings, and insects.
  • Food allergy testing rules out intolerance and helps form a treatment plan.

Immunology and Allergy Shots for Canton

Get long-term relief from allergy attacks with immunotherapy injections. We treat Canton adult and pediatric patients with routine allergy shots. Our immunologist will let you know how often you need allergy shots. This type of immunotherapy treats environmental and seasonal allergies. Allergy shots minimize triggers, symptoms, and the number of attacks. Relieve chronic conditions and sinus infections with allergy shots. If you have a bee venom allergy, the injections are approximately 98% effective. Allergy shots may prevent children over six from developing asthma. We also offer influenza vaccines in our allergy and asthma center.

Asthma Diagnosis and Treatment for Canton

Asthma disrupts daily life and is a common long-term illness. We provide asthma diagnosis and treatment for Canton patients. The breathing condition has no cure, but you can manage it with the proper treatment. Our board-certified asthma doctor commits to giving you a higher quality of life. We treat adult and pediatric asthmatic patients in our center. Our asthma doctors diagnose anyone six years and up using a spirometry or breathing test. We examine children under six based on symptoms. The asthma doctor may need to perform allergy testing to develop a treatment plan. Allergens cause asthma, and we need to determine potential triggers. Part of managing asthma is avoidance and medication. Avoiding irritants and triggers reduces and prevents asthma attacks. Allergens like dust, pollen, dander, or perfume will agitate the condition. Asthma can develop from respiratory infections, exercise, and even Massachusetts winter air. Asthmatic symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and trouble breathing. Our asthma doctor is committed to providing high-quality care and relief. Managing your condition lets you live a higher quality of life.

Food Allergy Testing Canton MA

Food allergy testing helps diagnose and rule out certain illnesses. Certain foods may cause an allergic reaction. Severe allergies can be life-threatening and can result in anaphylaxis. An allergic reaction to food does not only affect breathing but also may cause hives or rashes. You may experience digestive issues, swelling or tingling lips, scalp, and feet. You may have a watery and itchy nose or eyes or stuffiness. Our immunologist will decide on blood or skin food allergy testing. We can also perform food allergy testing on infants. Common allergic foods include dairy, nuts, fish, wheat, and seed. Unfortunately, food allergies have no cure, but you can manage them. Our doctor of immunology will likely prescribe an epinephrine autoinjector (epi-pen). Behavioral adjustments include avoiding the food and wearing medical alert identification.
