Allergy Clinic, Allergy Shots, Allergy Doctor


Charles H. Hutchins, M.D. in Gastonia, North Carolina has over three decades of experience in the treatment of allergies. There is no need to suffer from hay fever symptoms such as runny/stuffy nose, sinus pain and pressure, headaches, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, sore throat, and chronic cough. Allergies can make it difficult to enjoy life and can predispose a person to more serious conditions. Fortunately, relief is readily available in our clinic. Specific immunotherapy based on titration skin testing is used to formulate a precise treatment vaccine. Symptoms diminish over time as sensitivity is reduced.

The purpose of the skin testing is to determine the precise degree of sensitivity to each antigen so that the dose for each antigen in the treatment vaccine can be accurately calculated and the proper proportion of each antigen included. Thus, as the vaccine dose is increased, we are able to avoid over-treating with one antigen before reaching the therapeutic dose of another.

With this approach we can routinely reach the full dose in five weeks. Then the weekly injections usually may be administered at home by the patient or a family member. After one year some patients can discontinue the treatment, but most require longer to sufficiently reduce their sensitivity.

The precision of Rinkle titration skin testing and dose calculation has enabled us avoid any severe systemic reactions in the testing and treatment of thousands of allergy patients.

Various allergy medications are often useful adjuncts for patients taking the vaccines.  Patients with perennial allergies or those with seasonal allergies lasting several months usually do best with the vaccine hypo-sensitization as their basic therapy and supplementary treatment with the adjunctive measures as needed.

Dr. Hutchins is triple board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngologic Allergy, the American Board of Otolaryngology -- Head and Neck Surgery, and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
