Discover your allergic triggers with allergy skin testing in Somis CA
Are you afraid you have an allergic condition? Before you make drastic adjustments to your life on your own, like giving away your cat or cutting shellfish from your diet, come to Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group to receive a professional diagnosis of your condition using allergy skin testing in Somis CA.
Signs You Should Get Allergy Skin Testing in Somis CA
When confronted with an allergen, your immune system may throw a variety of different symptoms at you. These are some of the most common symptoms, and should cue you to the possible need for allergy skin testing in Somis CA:
- Itchy or watery eyes
- Nasal congestion
- Runny nose
- Coughing or wheezing
- Itchy, red, or swollen areas on skin
- Consistent vomiting or distress after eating a certain food
- Swelling of the face or throat causing trouble breathing or swallowing
Individuals with one kind of allergy often have more–especially if the individual is a child. Rather than discover all your triggers by trial and error, use allergy skin testing in Somis CA to learn about them in a controlled environment.
Is Allergy Skin Testing Safe?
Allergy skin testing in Somis CA does not trigger the full-blown immune response you might fear. Instead, the test results in very minor discomfort similar to a mosquito bite. Your allergist will apply a drop of a solution containing the suspected allergen to your skin, and if you are allergic a small swollen or itchy spot will appear within 15 to 20 minutes. After 30 minutes the spot will be gone.
It is important to note that not all allergy skin testing methods are created equal. At Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Medical Group, we only provide IgE allergy skin testing in Somis CA because this is the method endorsed by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology.
