Virgin Islands Allergy Center
Virgin Islands Allergy Center is co-located in the Paragon Medical Building. Both inhalant and food allergies are tested and treated in our state-of-the-art CLIA certified laboratory. Both skin and blood testing for foods, inhalants, insects and preservatives are performed. We are proud to have the only HYCOR ELISA allergy testing system in the entire Caribbean. Patient counseling for environmental controls, as well as immunotherapy (allergy shots) are conducted on site. Our laboratory performs the only pollen and mold counts for the territory of the US Virgin Islands. This information is available on our website and is disseminated to the local media as well as to www.pollen.com and to The Weather Channel.
Please email us at email@example.com if you would like to be placed on or removed from our daily pollen and mold update list.

Allergy drops, also known as sublingual immunotherapy, work like allergy shots, slowly desensitizing you to your allergies. However, allergy drops are delivered under your tongue in a drop form that you can easily take at home. Allergy drops can safely and effectively treat a broad range of allergies, including pollens, dander and other environmental allergies as well as foods, molds and chemical sensitivities.
Although most allergy sufferers can benefit from allergy drops, they’re especially ideal for people who can’t tolerate or don’t respond to allergy shots, as well as people who are unable to commit to allergy shot therapy. These people include:
- Infants and children, particularly those with eczema and recurrent ear infections
- Highly sensitive people
- Those with chronic conditions, including sinusitis
- People with food and mold allergies
- People with multiple allergies including dust, pollen, animals, and pollen
