If you are allergic, you are reacting to a particular substance. Any substance that can trigger an allergic reaction is called an allergen. To determine which specific substances are triggering your allergies, our Ear, Nose and Throat, Ltd. doctor will direct the Allergy Clinic staff to safely and effectively test your skin, or sometimes your blood, using tiny amounts of commonly troublesome allergens.
Allergy tests are designed to gather the most specific information possible so we can determine what you are allergic to and provide the best treatment.
Allergy tests provide concrete specific information about what you are and are not allergic to. Once you have identified the specific allergen(s) causing your symptoms, you and our physician/allergy team can develop a treatment plan aimed at controlling or eliminating your allergy symptoms.
With your allergy symptoms under control you should see a considerable improvement in the quality of your life. Improved sleep quality because of less congestion, days without constant sneezing and blowing your nose, life without frequent sinus infections, improved ability to exercise, and better control of your atopic dermatitis (eczema) are some of improvements you may gain from your allergy treatment plans. In most cases, sinus infections are brought on by allergies.
