Allergy Testing

Allergies result from a dysfunction of the immune system. When the body encounters harmless antigens in the environment (pollen, mold, pet dander, etc.), it should simply ignore them. But sometimes, the immune system mistakenly perceives the antigens as threats and overreacts in ways that lead to troubling symptoms.

Common symptoms of environmental allergies include:

  • Environmental allergy testing
  • Sneezing
  • Watery or itchy eyes
  • Runny or stuffed-up nose
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Asthma
  • Frequent ear infections
  • Skin rashes (eczema, hives)
  • Chronic cough, bronchitis
  • Conjunctivitis (“pink eye”)
  • Nasal polyps
  • Headache
  • Fatigue

Food Allergies

A food allergy is an adverse immune response to a food protein. Instead of perceiving food proteins as harmless, the immune system mistakes them for an “invading enemy,” releasing harmful chemicals into the body to try to eradicate them.

Common symptoms of food allergies include:

    • Skin rash
    • Itching of mouth, lips, tongue, throat, eyes, skin, or other areas
    • Swelling (angioedema) of the eyes, lips, tongue
    • Difficulty swallowing and breathing
    • Digestive trouble (flatulence, cramping, diarrhea, etc.)
    • Hay fever-like symptoms
    • Hoarse voice
    • Wheezing and/or shortness of breath
    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Anaphylaxis
