While completely avoiding an allergen is the most effective treatment, it’s not always realistic. That’s why we offer a variety of therapy options including medications as well as different immunotherapy options to treat the underlying cause of your allergies.
We also offer the option of cluster allergy shots to treat underlying allergies, helping you achieve your maintenance dose over a few weeks (as opposed to a few months) so you can experience relief sooner.
To schedule an appointment at our main campus, call Adena Allergy today at 740-779-2873. No referrals are needed to see our allergy team.
For your appointment, bring a list of your symptoms and medications you’ve tried, including:
For food allergies - keep a detailed food diary for two weeks before your appointment that records what you’re eating, when you’re eating and what type of reaction you’re having.
For food, venom or environmental allergy testing - avoid taking prescription or over-the-counter antihistamines for five days before testing to help ensure accurate skin testing results. If you are unable to stop using antihistamines, let us know and we can discuss alternative options at your appointment.
It can be helpful to come prepared with questions for your allergist about symptoms, prevention and treatment options. Bringing another person to help take notes can also help you remember exactly what was discussed.
