Discover your allergic triggers with allergy skin testing in Thousand Oaks CA
Do you suspect you may have an allergy? 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 Thousand Oaks CA.
Signs You Should Get Allergy Skin Testing in Thousand Oaks CA
Sometimes, other conditions like food intolerance can mimic allergy symptoms. But it is always better to be safe than sorry, so you will likely want to get allergy skin testing in Thousand Oaks CA if you experience:
- 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 Thousand Oaks CA to learn about them in a controlled environment.
Is Allergy Skin Testing Safe?
Allergy skin testing in Thousand Oaks 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. After making a small prick in your skin, your allergist will apply a drop of a solution containing the suspected allergic trigger. If you develop a small itchy bump, your allergy is confirmed. The test takes just 15 to 20 minutes and the reaction will fade within 30 minutes.
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 Thousand Oaks CA because this is the method endorsed by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology.
