Our Piscataway Practice’s Approach
Riverside Medical Group allergists can make allergies are the least of your worries. Allergy sufferers may become used to frequent symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion or wheezing. With the help of an allergist, these symptoms can usually be prevented or controlled with major improvement in quality of life.
An allergic reaction may occur anywhere in the body but usually appears in the nose, eyes, lungs, lining of the stomach, sinuses, throat and skin. These are places where special immune system cells are stationed to fight off invaders that are inhaled, swallowed or come in contact with the skin.We make sure to administer the appropriate test in order to get you the best results.
We believe educated patients are more in control of their asthma and/or allergies. Our goal is to help you get the best care possible. That’s why we strive to share our knowledge and be accessible to you. We’re here to help!
Allergy Treatments in Piscataway
Some allergy problems – such as a mild case of hay fever – may not need any treatment. Sometimes your allergies can be controlled with the occasional use of an over-the-counter medication. However, sometimes allergies can interfere with your day-to-day activities or decrease your quality of life. You may want to consider treatment for your condition. Some of the treatments we provide are:
A physical exam is an important part of diagnosing any medical condition. At your appointment, your doctor will ask you about your symptoms and personal and medical history. Specifically, they will ask about your symptoms, lifestyle, family history and medical conditions.
A spirometry test can confirm whether you have asthma or another disease. And it helps your healthcare provider decide on your treatment. A spirometry test can also show how well your treatment is working. If follow-up spirometry tests show that your asthma is well controlled, your treatment is working. If it shows that your asthma is not under control, your doctor may need to change your medicine or give you more medicine.
Another way our allergy doctors test the viability of your respiratory system is through a Peak Flow assessment. This assessment utilizes a Peak Flow Meter that tests the strength of your breathing. The test works by blowing as hard as you can until you meet a certain threshold within the meter.
Skin Prick Test
The test is usually performed on the inside of your arm or on your back. Typically, a nurse administers the test, and then your doctor reviews your reactions. Testing and interpreting the results usually takes less than an hour but the time depends on the number of allergens being tested.
Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) is an alternative way to treat allergies without the use of injections. Your immunologist will provide you with an allergen drop to boost tolerance to the substance and reduce symptoms.
Allergy shots are injections you receive at regular intervals over a period of approximately three to five years to stop or reduce allergy attacks. Allergy shots are a form of treatment called immunotherapy.
