Discover your allergic triggers with allergy skin testing in Valencia CA
Most people are able to make educated guesses about their allergens with some degree of accuracy. But sometimes the fact that multiple allergens may be present when you experience symptoms can cloud the waters, and experimenting on your own could be risky. The best way to conclusively establish which substances are triggering your allergies is to get professional allergy skin testing in Valencia CA in a doctor’s office.
Signs You Should Get Allergy Skin Testing in Valencia 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 Valencia 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
Remember, people with one allergy often have more. Would you rather discover your allergic triggers by chance or learn about them in the peace and quiet of an allergist’s office via allergy skin testing in Valencia CA?
Is Allergy Skin Testing Safe?
If you have severe allergy symptoms, you might be hesitant about deliberately exposing yourself to an allergen. The truth is, you don’t need to worry because allergy skin testing in Valencia CA is a quick and easy process no more painful or irritating than getting a mosquito bite. Allergy skin testing involves exposing you to a small drop of an allergen-containing solution and then monitoring for a reaction within 15 to 20 minutes. If you are allergic to the substance being tested, a small white bump surrounded by itchy red skin will appear. This bump should fade after 30 minutes.
