Walk-In Allergy Testing in Brooklyn and Queens

AG Care allergy specialists perform quick allergy tests for children and adults at our Brooklyn and Queens locations.

Skin testing, also known as the pin prick test, is where an AG Care clinician will place a small drop of the suspected allergen onto your skin and then scratch the skin through the drop.

If you are allergic, then you will develop a reaction at that small site on the skin in about 15 minutes.

Our clinicians will combine this test with your medical history and sometimes a physical exam to come up with the best treatment plan for your allergies.

Allergy Treatment Options in Brooklyn and Queens

Minor Lifestyle Changes

Sometimes the most effective allergy treatment is simply to avoid the source of the allergen- the food, the pet or the drug. That may sound too easy, but we all know people who do this regularly.

For example, if you are allergic to cats you don’t go near them or visit someone who has them at home, thereby avoiding the allergy. If you are allergic to onions, you don’t eat them. If you are allergic to Penicillin, your clinician doesn’t prescribe it for you.

Allergy Shots

This treatment includes medications taken regularly that are injected or placed under the tongue. For some people with multiple allergies, this is the most effective type of treatment.

If a person is allergic to foods, grasses, trees and animals, of course they cannot avoid all of them. The best option to continue normal daily activities is to have regular immunotherapy. Based on allergy tests, these treatments can be closely matched to specific categories of allergies.

 

Prescribed Medication

Prescription medications are available when over-the-counter treatments to not bring releife. Our allergists can prescribe specific medications to counter the reaction from your body and give you relief from your allergy symptoms.

Over-the-Counter Treatments

  • Nose sprays to relieve runny noses
  • Antihistamines and decongestants to reduce runny noses, itching, swelling and congestion
  • Corticosteroid creams or ointments for rashes
  • Oral corticosteroids prescribed to stop severe allergic reactions
  • Epinephrine (ep-uh-NEF-rin), comes in a device (commonly called an epi-pen) that allows you to inject a shot of the drug within minutes of a life-threatening allergic reaction. Epinephrine auto-injector options are Adrenaclick®, EpiPen® or generic epinephrine.

Allergy Symptoms Treatment Brooklyn NY

Common Types of Allergies

Eye Allergies

Eye allergies are some of the most common. When something gets into your eyes, and they are allergic to it, the tissue that lines your eyelid becomes swollen, making your eye red, watery and itchy. Your eyes may feel like they have fine dirt in them.

Skin Allergies

Like all other allergies, your skin will show signs that it doesn’t like what it has come in contact with but it may take 48 hours. Not all skin allergies show themselves immediately but when it does you may see symptoms that include redness, blisters, itching, hives, rashes and/or cracked skin.

Nasal Allergies

Sometimes these are confused with other types of allergies. Some of us might think we have “hay fever.” However, there are specific allergens that cause the inside of the nose to become swollen and inflamed. Your nose may cause more and thicker mucus, it may drain down the back of your throat and cause you to cough. You may feel congested, sneeze, have a runny nose and itchy, watery eyes.

Sinus Allergies

Allergies of the sinus are called “Sinusitis”. It is a very specific inflammation of the sinuses, a series of four hollow spaces inside the skull. They are lined with the same types of tissue that line your nose. They can become irritated and swollen, just like your nose, when allergens are around. When the sinuses become irritated, mucus discharge increases, and swollen sinuses create pressure inside the head causing headaches.

What are allergies

What Are Allergies and Why Do They Happen?

Allergies occur when the body’s immune system overreacts to something it doesn’t like. Allergies are considered a chronic disease, but don’t let that scare you. It just means that they last a long time or occur frequently.

When you are allergic to something, your body’s immune system makes immunoglobulin which is an antibody. The job of the antibody is to respond to things you are allergic to and warn you that your body doesn’t like them.

When antibodies do their job you have what we call an allergic reaction.

For example, when pollen gets in your nose your body overreacts by sneezing to try to get rid of the pollen.

If you come in contact with a cat and your body doesn’t like that, you may break out in hives, sneezing, or your eyes may become itchy.

Common Causes of Allergies

Some allergies last a lifetime and are caused by specific things like peanut butter, bee stings, and pets. Others are seasonal and come and go, like allergies to pollen, trees and grass.

Common causes of allergies include:

  • Medications
  • Food
  • Latex
  • Mold
  • Pets
  • Pollen
  • Insects
  • Cosmetics

These allergies can affect different parts of your body. AG Care allergy specialists in Brooklyn and Queens are trained to diagnose and treat these symptoms effectively.
