Allergy testing & treatment

What Could Be Triggering Your Allergy Symptoms?

Allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis are conditions caused by exposure to environmental allergens. It is common, affecting up to 30% of adults and 40% of children. People often describe red, itchy, watery eyes, itchy runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion and in some people, itching ears, mouth and throat. Symptoms that occur year-round may be caused by dust mites, cockroach, molds or animal danders (skin flakes).

Seasonal allergic rhinitis from tree, grass or weed pollens can make it difficult to enjoy the outdoors.

How Do Allergies Affect You?

While allergy symptoms may be viewed as an incidental disease, symptoms of allergic rhinitis may have a significant affect on a person’s quality of life which is nothing sneeze at. Symptoms can be associated with fatigue, headache, cognitive impairment and sleep disturbance. Allergy medications such as anti-histamines may add to these symptoms. As with other illnesses such as “the flu”, the body releases inflammatory chemicals or cytokines which make it hard to be at your best. Allergy symptoms disturb work and school productivity, and are a major cause of “presenteeism” or working while sick. Appropriate management of allergic rhinitis is an important part of managing related conditions such as asthma, sinusitis and sleep apnea. Allergic rhinitis may have a role in frequent colds and recurrent ear infections. The financial burden may be directly from additional medical costs or indirectly from loss of productivity.

Testing For Allergies

Allergy testing is a pivotal step in understanding and managing allergic reactions. Allergies can manifest in various ways, from sneezing and itching to more severe symptoms like hives or anaphylaxis. These reactions are triggered by specific substances known as allergens. Your
physician may recommend undergoing allergy testing to determine the precise allergens responsible for your symptoms. This diagnostic process will be performed through a skin test, which is considered the “Gold Standard” for identifying specific allergens. If you are sensitive to an allergen that spot may become red (flare) a little swollen (weal) and itchy.
