Tissue, please! Millions of people across the country struggle with allergies. But in Austin, the allergy capital, most everyone suffers. Discovering the trigger for your allergy is vital to search for an effective treatment option. With the advancements in medicine today, allergy testing is more accurate and easier than ever before. Combined with an evaluation of your medical history, our experts at RejuvaWell in Austin can help you identify yours.
The RejuvaWell Difference
No Shots!!!! We can compound immunotherapy creams instead of shots or drops. Compliance improves dramatically and efficacy is similar to shots. With allergy shot immunotherapy, people need to get shots 2-4 days a week, and this can last for 2 or more years. Typically, patients begin treatment, but the fall off rate is huge! At RejuvaWell, we can test allergen sensitivity via blood labs and/or patch testing. Once we have identified what you are allergic to, our pharmacy can compound immunotherapy cream. This means instead of shots, or drops (that insurance does not cover), you can simply use a cream daily to build immunity. We will provide a superbill that you can send to your insurance company for reimbursement consideration. We have found that most insurance companies do cover this!
Which allergy testing method may be right for me?
Testing for allergies through patches and blood samples both have their respective advantages. Blood testing only involves a single withdrawal of blood through a fine needle. By doing so, certain medications will not be able to interfere with your results as they may with a patch test. Additionally, dermal conditions such as eczema or psoriasis can interfere with the results of a patch test. However, patch tests can grant quicker results than blood tests, helping our specialists determine an effective treatment sooner.
Can medications interfere with allergy testing?
Yes, some medications can alter the results of your allergy test. The prescription medication you may be taking will also determine the approach of allergy testing you receive. It is important that you inform our team of any prescription medications that you may be taking at the time of your appointment.
