Skin Testing for Allergies
Your diagnosis from the allergy skin test allows the Allergy & Asthma Consultants allergist to develop an allergy treatment plan that includes allergen avoidance, medications or immunotherapy measures such as allergy shots.
Blood Testing for Allergies
A small amount of blood is tested for an indication that your body has made allergic antibodies, called IgE.
An allergy occurs when you react to substance in the environment that is typically harmless to most people. Such allergens are commonly discovered in dust mites, pets, pollen, insects, ticks, molds, foods and some medications.
The immune system overreacts by producing antibodies (Immunoglobulin E or IgE) which it sends to cells to release chemicals, causing an allergic reaction. Reactions can range from sneezing and sniffling to a severe life-threatening response called anaphylaxis. If you have any allergic symptoms, it is important that you seek out professional help for allergy testing.
