School often starts at the end of summer, which means fall allergies are right around the corner.

When you’re juggling new classes, assignments, and socializing, the last thing you want to deal with is your allergies.

So what can you do to prevent allergies? First, getting an allergy test before you go back to school can help curb fall allergies. An allergy test will tell you what exactly you’re allergic to so that you can find the appropriate solution.

Ready to get your back-to-school allergy test? Dr. Pasha’s Snoring & Sinus Center can help you not only find what is causing all your symptoms, but also find a solution to eliminate them as well! Confirm an appointment with us today and avoid all those pesky allergies.

Know Why You Should Take an Allergy Test

It’s quite simple. When you take an allergy test, the results will help you determine exactly what allergens are causing your problems. From there, finding a treatment option that fits your specific needs is easy.

While that sometimes can mean adjustments to your lifestyle, solutions like immunotherapy are also a great option for reducing or eliminating symptoms completely.

We all experience allergies differently. So it makes sense that different solutions like over-the-counter antihistamines may not always work for some of us. And eventually, if you’re finding it hard to sleep comfortably because of congestion, and nothing seems to be working, it’s time to schedule a test.

An allergy test can actually help you figure out whether your symptoms are allergy-related or simply the common cold.
When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Pasha, we find the best treatment options available. Prepare for fall allergy season! Schedule your allergy test with Dr. Pasha today.

Determine the Right Type of Allergy Test for You

Several types of allergy tests are available. While certain tests may test for specific allergies, others can determine airborne, food, medication, and insect sting allergies.

1. Skin Prick

This test utilizes a thin needle to prick your skin on the forearm or back. Allergens are within the ends of the needles. When you are allergic to one of the allergens, your skin will become red and swollen in that area. A skin prick determines a reaction for airborne, penicillin, and food allergens.

2. Intradermal Skin Test

If a skin prick test is inconclusive, an intradermal test is the next option. Instead of pricking your skin with a needle, a small amount of an allergen is injected into the outer layer of skin. An intradermal test can determine if you’re allergic to airborne allergens, medications, and insect stings.

3. Blood Test

A blood test has a high rate of accuracy, but might be the most intimidating for some. First, a sample of blood is collected. Then, in a lab, allergens are added to the sample, and levels of IgE antibodies are measured.
