How is allergy testing and allergy treatment done?
Anyone who has allergies doesn't have any doubt when they are having an allergy attack; however, not everyone knows what's causing their allergies. An allergic reaction is your body's immune system response to certain substances in the environment or allergens. Allergic reaction symptoms can include everything from red, itchy eyes and sneezing to coughing and rashes. For those with serious allergies like allergic reactions to peanuts and bee stings, it can be life-threatening.
At HEALOR Primary Care, the first step in our allergy treatments is to test you to find out what causes your allergies. There are several types of allergy tests, including:
- Patch tests — tests for contact dermatitis, where the doctor puts a drop of an allergen on the skin then covers it to see if there's a reaction.
- Skin prick test — a thin needle is used to prick the skin, or a device to scratch the skin is used, and the doctor can introduce up to 50 different allergens to see if you get a reaction.
- Blood test — this lab test determines IgE antibodies in the blood.
Once we've discovered what you are allergic to, our doctors can develop a customized treatment program to help control your allergies. Treatments may include:
- Allergy shots
- Strategies to minimize exposure
- And more
