Allergy symptoms can make your days miserable and take a toll on your long-term health.
Take the First Step Towards Relief
When you suffer from allergies, you’re always just a second away from having a bright, beautiful day turn into an itchy, stuffy, miserable mess. A walk down the street, eating at a restaurant, getting stung by an insect, or coming in contact with a latex glove can completely disrupt your world without you knowing the true cause or how to prevent it. Before you know it, you break out in hives, your face begins to swell, and nose starts to run.
They can even be life-threatening (anaphylaxis). Each year, around 200,000 people in the U.S. are sent to the emergency room due to an allergic reaction (1). These hospital visits and the scary, painful reactions these patience experience to allergens are almost always preventable.
How Dallas Breathe Free Diagnoses Your Allergies.
Based on your ENT's recommendations, one or several allergy tests may be ordered to diagnose your allergies properly. Tests can be conducted in your physician’s office or at a hospital due to the risk of a severe reaction, while rare.
- Skin Tests
Prick: Allergens are applied to your skin through a “prick.” Your skin’s reaction to the allergen will reveal if you have an allergic reaction and to what degree.
Intradermal: Allergens can also be placed under your skin through intradermal testing, which is known to be more sensitive than a prick test. Intradermal is often used to test for your reaction to insect stings.
Patch: Skin patch tests involve placing allergens on pads and taping them to your skin. This test is ordered to determine if you have eczema (contact dermatitis) caused by several allergens.
- Blood Tests
IgE/RAST: Allergies occur when your immune system’s antibodies fight against allergens that they deem to be harmful to your health. The RAST test analyzes your antibodies to see what you’re allergic to.
Don’t continue to suffer from allergies without knowing what you’re reacting to.
