Have you ever wondered what you or your loved ones are allergic to? Allergy testing takes away guessing games when it comes to your health. That way, you know what you’re dealing with and how your allergies can be treated.
At the Breathe Clear Institute, we test for 40 different allergens at the same time. This includes 32 environmental allergens such as weeds, trees, dust mites, dander, mold, and grasses. However, it also includes 8 common food allergens like shellfish, wheat, egg, soy, milk, peanuts, almonds, and cod fish.
Common allergy symptoms include itchy and watery eyes, congestion, runny nose, itchy ears, post nasal drip, and skin rashes or inflammation. If you or a loved one are experiencing any of these symptoms, schedule allergy testing today so you can start finding the relief you need.MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
For accuracy, allergy skin tests require that antihistamines be completely out of your system. Patients should refrain from taking them for 3-7 days prior to testing. After confirming the patient is not on any antihistamines, we conduct a skin test that takes about 20 minutes. Allergies are indicated by bumps that look like a mosquito bite.
The total appointment takes 1 hour. As for discomfort, itchiness is the most that patients will feel. Once we determine which allergens are triggering your symptoms, we will discuss treatment options. If immunotherapy is recommended, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to begin treatment.
