Allergy Treatment

Allergy Treatment

At Pinehurst Surgical Clinic, we deal with dozens of patients on a daily basis suffering from various ear, nose and throat problems. Our otolaryngologists in Pinehurst, Raeford, Rockingham, Sanford and Troy have found that a significant number of these problems encountered in patients are caused, either directly or indirectly, by allergies.

If you are suffering from any type of ENT problem and believe it may be caused by allergies, please contact one of our allergy specialists today to schedule an appointment.

How Are Allergies Treated at Pinehurst Surgical Clinic?

At Pinehurst Surgical Clinic, we take three approaches to allergy care:

  1. Avoidance of the offending allergens
  2. Pharmacotherapy (medications)
  3. Immunotherapy (allergy shots or sublingual drops)

The treatment our allergy doctors choose for your individual allergy problem will depend on several factors. When you come in for your first appointment, we will determine the best course of treatment by taking your medical history and performing a basic physical examination. Next, your Allergy Nurse will perform specific tests to identify the offending allergens and confirm a final diagnosis.


    Allergy Skin Testing

    Allergy Ear, Nose, Throat, Head & Neck (ENT)

    During allergy skin tests, your skin is exposed to suspected allergy-causing substances (allergens) and is then observed for signs of an allergic reaction.


    Subcutaneous Immunotherapy (SCIT)

    SCIT Allergy Shots ENT

    Allergy shots, also known as subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT), have been a proven allergy treatment for more than 100 years. They are the only treatment that changes the immune system.

    Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is a newer form of immunotherapy. Instead of injecting an allergen under the skin, small doses are administered under the tongue.
