Diagnostic Tests

This service category is very important for medium-range and long-term control and reduction of recurring skin problems. It's very nice to use things at home and have procedures done under Service Category that help a patient guest look and feel better, but it is far nicer still to understand diagnostically what has insulted the skin to slow down or stop the problem.

Biopsy Analysis

Our providers can test the skin by taking a small skin biopsy, and having it analyzed under a microscope by a dermatopathologist. The pathology lab will analyze for bacteria, fungus, yeast, or viral infection, while examining the architecture of the skin for the cause of the skin condition like inflammation or skin cancer.

Environmental Allergy Test

The staff at World’s Famous Dermatologist can also use a topical application of extract oil to screen for risk factors related to Georgia’s environment. We test for over 72 antigens including pets, dust, plants, trees, grasses, infectious organisms, dietary food groups, and environmental insects. If you test positive to any of these environmental risks contributing to your skin disease, we can work toward desensitizing the patient to certain allergies with immunotherapy, promoting fewer challenges with abnormal skin and better control.

FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING

When patients are experiencing a rash or breakout, we recommend a blood test to screen for food sensitivities and allergies. The blood test analyzes for antibodies and complement proteins in the blood, which indicate a marker for delayed hypersensitivity to certain foods causing a skin reaction. The test examines over 100 foods commonly ingested. The patient receives a very detailed report that indicates the level of tolerance, what foods to reduce, what foods to eliminate, and what foods are well tolerated. Our guests can often expect improvement in their skin and overall wellness after making the right dietary adjustments.

Diagnostic Tests
  • Scratch or prick allergy test – Dr. Bryant will either scratch or prick the skin and then apply a small amount of whatever allergen we are testing. If you have an allergy, you will immediately develop a rash, redness, swelling and/or itching in that area.
  • Intradermal allergy test – In this test, a small amount of the suspected allergen will be injected under the skin and an allergic reaction on the surface of the skin will appear if you are allergic.
    • Special air conditioning filters
    • Install all wood floors instead of carpet
    • Use a HEPA filter in your vacuum and vacuum very frequently
    • Purchase ‘mite proof’ pillowcases and wash linens often
    • You can also buy an air cleaner and dehumidifier to use in the bedroom, keep pets out of the bedroom
    • Spray for roaches regularly, keep food stored in air tight containers and take out the trash daily
Treatments for Allergies

While there are lots of allergy medications available, there are also a plethora of side affects that come with them. We prefer to use other means if possible to treat your allergies. Other available treatments include allergy therapy, oral tablets, and shots. There may also be some physical changes for dust allergies you can make to your surroundings. This would include:

    • Special air conditioning filters
