Tests & Treatments

  • If you are allergic to pollen, mold or other hard-to-avoid substances, allergy shots can provide relief. The treatment, also called allergen immunotherapy, slowly and safely builds up your tolerance. At Rush you can get allergy shots to ease symptoms of allergy-induced asthma, eczema and allergic rhinitis.
  • Skin Testing

    Skin testing is a way to diagnose allergies. During a percutaneous skin test, a doctor places a small amount of a suspected allergen on the patient's skin and then pricks the skin with a needle so that the substance seeps under the surface. During an intracutaneous skin test, a doctor injects a small amount of the suspected allergen into the skin. Both types of skin testing help determine which allergens are causing symptoms.
  • Sleep surgeons at Rush offer advanced treatments for obstructive sleep apnea and other conditions that affect your breathing and ability to sleep.
