DO YOU SOMETIMES HOLD BACK ON DOING THE THINGS YOU LOVE?

With a simple test you can find out if you or a family member has an allergy, do something about it and start feeling yourself again.

So, why should you choose to get an Allergy Test?

Allergies often heat up in the summer, when allergens such as grass, mold and ragweed pollen bring on symptoms like watery eyes and sneezing. Outdoor picnics and activities can pose more serious dangers for people who are allergic to certain foods or stinging insects.

It may seem that discovering what you are allergic to is a guessing game. However, testing performed by an expert can diagnose what does and what does not trigger your symptoms. For example, you don’t have to get rid of your cat if it is actually mold that is causing your itchy eyes and throat. Once you know exactly what you are allergic to, you and your doctor will be able to develop a treatment plan to reduce or eliminate your allergy symptoms.

Types of allergy tests

Allergy tests are the best and safest way to tell exactly what triggers your symptoms. Common triggers include: dust mites, animal dander, molds, pollen, cockroach droppings, stinging insects, foods, latex and drugs.

SKIN TESTS

This is the most common kind of testing. In this test, a small amount of allergen is placed on your skin, and this area is pricked or scratched. If you are allergic, you’ll experience a little swelling at the site of the prick test.

INTRADERMAL TESTS

Intradermal tests are more sensitive than prick tests, and may be used when prick test results are inconclusive. In this test, your specialist will use a syringe to inject some allergen under your skin.

Challenge Tests icon

CHALLENGE TESTS

Challenge tests are sometimes used when the doctor suspects you have a food or drug allergy. In this test, patients eat or inhale a very small amount of possible allergens under the close supervision of an physician.

Blood Tests icon

BLOOD TESTS

For this test, blood is drawn and then tested for allergies. This test is much more comprehensive than the other tests. However, it only takes a few days to receive a thorough, detailed result.

Should I be tested?

  • Itchy eyes, nose and throat
  • Nasal congestion or runny nose
  • Watery eyes
  • Hives, itchiness or other skin conditions
  • Severe reactions to insect stings
  • Abdominal pain or diarrhea after eating certain foods
