Allergy diagnostic testing and therapy
Allergies are becoming more and more common in today’s modern society, whether it is hay fever, watery eyes, respiratory problems or skin allergies in the form of itchy rashes or eczema. These symptoms are a reaction to the body’s natural defense system to defend itself against certain, normally harmless, environmental substances (allergens). These consequences can range from a feeling of a slight body reaction to more debilitating conditions.
To specifically diagnose an allergy problem and to determine the appropriate treatment, your healthcare practitioner will utilize certain diagnostic tests as well as acquire a detailed and comprehensive evaluation of any signs and symptoms that may be indicative of an allergy.
