Allergy Testing

WHAT IS IT?
Along with your medical history, allergy tests can confirm whether signs and symptoms, such as sneezing, wheezing and skin rashes are caused by allergies. Allergy tests can also identify the specific substances that trigger allergic reactions. Information from allergy tests can help your doctor develop an allergy treatment plan that may include allergen avoidance, medications or allergy shots (immunotherapy).
