Allergy Testing and Treatment from ENT Specialists in Wesley Chapel, FL
If you have an allergy that affects your ears, nose, or throat, you don’t have to live with endless sneezing, congestion, headaches, and other bothersome symptoms. Scotch Institute of Ear Nose & Throat provides a full spectrum of testing and treatment for allergies for kids and adults in Wesley Chapel, Florida. Our practice is led by Dr. Brett Scotch, a board-certified otolaryngologist and otolaryngic allergy specialist who collaborates with experienced allergy nurses to provide outstanding, patient focused care to each of his patients.
Did you know that nasal allergies affect more than 50 million Americans? That’s according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, which also estimates that allergies are on the rise. At Scotch Institute of ENT in Wesley Chapel, FL, we treat several types of allergic reactions, including:
- Allergic rhinitis
- Non-allergic (vasomotor) rhinitis
- Seasonal allergies
- Food allergies
Dr. Scotch can also perform skin allergy testing to pinpoint the allergen(s) that is causing a patient’s symptoms. During this painless test, a very small amount of each allergen is applied to the patient’s back, and if the skin becomes slightly itchy or red, it can be determined that the patient is allergic to the applied substance. We can test for around 40 allergens that are common in our area, such as various molds, weeds, grasses, trees, dust, and animal danders.
Additionally, Scotch Institute of ENT offers allergy drops, or sublingual immunotherapy, to help patients build up their own natural immunity against their specific allergies. These drops are custom formulated right here in our office, can be taken at home, and quickly dissolve under the tongue. No more inconvenient and painful shots. Other available allergy treatments include oral and nasal medications, lifestyle and dietary modifications.
