Take Control of Your Allergy Symptoms
If you experience any allergic symptoms, a simple skin allergy test and/or blood test can help you and your primary care provider make more informed decisions about your health. Common allergy symptoms include watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose, wheezing, rashes, hives, scratchy throat, coughing, congestion, stomach pain, and swelling of lips, tongue, and/or throat.
Understanding Allergens and Allergy Testing
Find Out What Is Causing Your Symptoms
Allergies affect as many as 30-40% of all people, but over-the-counter medicines like antihistamines might not help ease allergy symptoms. Whether you are exposed to pollens, certain foods, dust mites, pets, or mold, it’s important to understand what is causing your symptoms by performing allergy testing.
