There is a range of tests available to determine allergic reactions. We use the best methods available for fast, health allergy testing. These procedures include:

  • Allergy Skin Testing
  • Bee Testing
  • Challenge testing
  • Drug Testing
  • Food Testing
  • Helicobacter pylori testing
  • Immunotherapy
  • Flexible Rhinoscopy
  • Pulmonary Function Testing
  • Patch Testing
  • Xray/CT review on site


Both seasonal and perennial allergies have a host of different symptoms and are often confused with viral or bacterial infections. Congestion, runny nose, itchy, red eyes, sneezing, coughing, headaches, and postnasal drainage may be a symptom of an allergic reaction instead of a virus. Pollen and dust allergies can cause sinus infections or even trigger asthma attacks with shortness of breath and chest tightness. Rare cases may cause drops in blood pressure, shortness of breath, unconsciousness, or anaphylaxis. Some allergies can cause skin rashes such as eczema or atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, hives or urticarial, and swelling or angioedema. It is important to have the proper seasonal allergies treatment.

Convenient Testing

Patients who suffer from seasonal or perennial allergies, asthma, sinusitis, or allergic skin disorders are evaluated with skin surface or prick tests, intradermal tests, or by blood RAST testing to find pollen, mold, dust, or food allergies. This testing can also be used for patients with possible drug and bee sting allergies. X-ray screening of sinuses or chests may be required for certain allergies, and screenings can be computerized CT or conventional.

As an Allergy Specialist in Glenn Dale, MD we also use flexible rhinoscopy, a 30-minute procedure that allows direct visualization of the nose, sinuses, throat, and vocal cords for evidence of infection, inflammation, and acid reflux.

The Care You Need

We offer special care and time to patients with complicated conditions. Once you’re diagnosed, our physicians provide the prescribed treatments using the most up-to-date medications, including nasal sprays, oral anti-histamine, decongestants, inhalers, and topical preparations. Many patients start allergy injections or immunotherapy, which is a vaccine that is the closest thing to a cure and enables our patients to overcome and control most of their seasonal or perennial allergies. It also allows them to reduce or discontinue most of their medications. Immunotherapy has been the only treatment to help many patients live normal lives.


Asthma Treatment – Maryland

The doctors and staff at Allergy and Asthma Health Care in Maryland are experienced in treatment of all forms of seasonal allergies, perennial allergies, sinusitis and asthma. Our Seasonal Allergy Treatment team uses everything at its disposal to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment. We realize, for example, that allergies are very common and can cause sinusitis or trigger attacks of asthma, resulting in significant health problems, and loss of time from school or work. That is why we start all visits with a detailed history and physical examination, perform breathing tests to rule out asthma, and perform skin testing to diagnose environmental and food allergies. Nutrition and proper diet to avoid allergic reactions, asthma exacerbations (yes, asthma!) and control gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) is a major focus of our approach to good health. We order computerized (CT) xray scans of head, sinuses and chest and view films over the internet with our patients during office visits. All medications and treatment plans including allergy injections are carefully explained and all questions are answered. Finally, we use a number of patient handouts written by our experts to explain about infections and medications and thoroughly educate our patients. You can be certain that we are committed to providing patients with only the best and most complete allergy, sinus and asthma treatment.
