Our Approach to Pediatric Allergy Testing

At TexasAllergyMD we specialize in pediatric allergy testing, providing a safe and nurturing environment for our younger patients. Our testing services include skin prick testing, blood testing, patch testing and the oral food challenge.

Many years of training and experience enable us to create a welcoming space where children feel comfortable discussing their allergy issues. While all patients, both adults and children, will receive the same high-quality testing services, pediatric allergy care can require a lighter touch. Our skin prick test devices provide an excellent example, as they are decorated to resemble caterpillars, transforming a medical procedure into a lighthearted interaction.

Why Choose Our Pediatric Allergy Testing Services

Dr. Mireku is a board-certified medical doctor with three years of pediatric residency and an additional three years specializing in allergy immunology. This extensive background in pediatrics helps Dr. Mireku skillfully gather essential information from children, contributing significantly to an accurate diagnosis. In turn, precise pediatric allergy test results help in developing comprehensive allergy treatments.

Should a child test positive for an allergy, we provide several pediatric allergy management solutions. Treatments include oral immunotherapy and food sublingual immunotherapy to build allergen tolerance in toddlers, school-age children and teenagers. We also offer comprehensive allergy care services to ensure the safety of allergic children in school, at camp and on sports teams.

Common Questions About Pediatric Allergy Testing

Due to their prevalence, the most common allergens tested for in children include environmental triggers like pollen, dust and pet dander, as well as food allergens such as peanuts, eggs, milk and shellfish.

The time it takes to get results from pediatric allergy testing varies depending on the test. Skin prick results are typically available within 15–20 minutes, while blood test results may take several days to be processed by a lab.

Allergy testing such as skin prick tests can indeed cause minor discomfort or itching, but substantial pain is rare. Dedicated pediatric allergists are skilled in using techniques that minimize stress and discomfort for children.
