Receiving allergy treatment shouldn’t be complicated. Luckily, CEENTA’s approach to allergy care takes just five easy steps. Your path to itch-free eyes and less sneezing includes the following:
You might have common allergy symptoms such as itchy watery eyes and nasal congestion. However, these symptoms can also be prevalent in various conditions affecting the ears, nose, and throat, so it's important to know the root cause. By scheduling with CEENTA, we can begin the process of determining whether these symptoms are actually due to allergies or other conditions such as sinusitis.
Scheduling your appointment can be done online, by calling 704-295-3000, or using your myCEENTAchart account.
Once it’s suspected that you have allergies, your physician will order your allergy test. This test will include twenty-two allergens that could be causing your symptoms, including ragweed, mold, and pet dandruff.
Prior to the test, your allergy technician will ask questions about your medical history that may impact your results, such as any asthma medication or antihistamines that were taken recently. They will also explain the testing process and what to expect to alleviate any concerns you may have.
After the overview, the allergy technician will administer the allergy test. The test is given with an applicator that pricks the skin on your forearm or back. The allergens you requested to be tested for will be on the applicator, and your skin will raise if your body has a reaction to any of them. Our allergy skin tests are done in-office and take between 45 minutes to an hour.
Your allergy test will give your physician insight into which allergens you are reacting to and what treatments are needed. You and your physician will work together to determine which treatment plan is best suited for you:
After 3-6 months of medicinal buildup, your physician may sign-off on home therapy options so you can continue treatment in the comfort of your own place.
