Immunotherapy Treatment

Percutaneous Testing

  • Percutaneous skin will be performed using a sterile multitest plastic device
  • This device will administer small amounts of the allergen on to your back.
  • Once administered the technician will wait 20 minutes to see if there was a reaction
  • A positive reaction will create a raised bump which will then be measured to check the severity of the allergen.

Immunotherapy Injections

  • Once determined that you would benefit from the allergy injections, you will discuss with your provider a plan of care.
  • A plan of care will specify how many times a week you will come in for your injections and the length of time you will continue treatment.
  • The injection treatment consists of two phases: the build up and maintenance phase.
  • The buildup phase will be over the first few months you begin with a small does of the allergen and slowly increase the dosage until you reach your maintenance dosage.
