An allergy refers to an exaggerated reaction by our immune system in response to exposure to allergens. Examples of allergens include pollens, dust mites, molds, animal dander, foods, and even medications. These allergens can trigger sneezing, wheezing, coughing, congestion, headaches, and itching. Allergies are not only bothersome, but many have been linked to a variety of serious respiratory illnesses (such as sinusitis and asthma). Additionally, allergic reactions can be severe and even fatal. However, with proper management and patient education, allergic diseases can be controlled, and people with allergies can lead normal and productive lives.
We test for 38 different allergens including weeds, grasses, trees, dust mites, molds, and dander. We do a combination of 2 different types of tests. Percutaneous technique (applied on the upper back) and Intradermal dilution testing (applied on the upper arm)
