Allergy Testing Services for Children and Adults in Wesley Chapel, FL
Allergy testing may be beneficial if you or a loved one are experiencing mysterious and stubborn allergy symptoms, such as congestion, sneezing, sore throat, watery or irritated eyes, or itchiness. Thankfully, comprehensive allergy tests are provided at Scotch Institute of Ear Nose & Throat in Wesley Chapel, Florida. Our practice is led by Dr. Brett Scotch, a board-certified otolaryngologist with extensive allergy training. Dr. Scotch collaborates with a team of experienced allergy nurses to provide the best allergy testing and treatment services possible to our patients, who range from young children to seniors.
Essentially, an allergy is the immune system’s overreaction to an allergen, which may be inhaled, eaten, or touched. We at Scotch Institute of ENT can test for about 40 allergens that are common in Wesley Chapel, FL, and the surrounding area. These allergens include:

We use painless skin allergy testing to quickly identify allergies. During testing, very tiny amounts of allergens are applied to a section of skin on the back. If the patient experiences skin irritation in a specific spot as the test develops, he or she is considered to be allergic to the corresponding allergen. Dr. Scotch and our allergy nurses can then suggest an appropriate treatment plan for the patient, which may include custom-formulated allergy drops (sublingual immunotherapy) that can be taken at home.
