Arlington Allergy Testing
Testing, Shots, & Drops for Allergies
Our experts at Cure Allergy Clinic have combined years of knowledge and training to take on just about any type of allergy issue. In terms of the testings we offer, we provide a multitude of immunotherapy treatments, allergy shots, and allergy drops for your condition. Once we detect the root cause of your allergens we will devise a comprehensive treatment plan to help build your immunity, or recommend long-term therapy such as immunotherapy.
Allergy Testing Q & A
Allergies begin when your immune system reacts to a safe substance and labels it as a danger to your body. Every time you breathe in that substance in the future, your immune system releases chemicals that cause an allergic reaction. Food and environmental substances are among the myriad causes of allergies.
Why Get An Allergy Test?
Allergy testing pinpoints the source or sources of your allergic response. Allergy testing is necessary to not only help arm you with knowledge about the substances that trigger your allergy symptoms but also to provide you with customized treatment for your allergies.
Cure Allergy Clinic offers a wide array of testing services, including for:
- Food allergies
- Environmental allergies (pollen, dust mites, and weeds)
- Complicated allergic diseases
- Gastrointestinal food allergy-related disease
- Lung testing for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma
- Immune system testing
Unlike most practices, Cure Allergy Clinic checks for food sensitivities, which may be tied to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bloating, and food allergies.
Should I Get Tested for Allergies?
You may consider getting allergy testing done if you experience:
Persistent or recurrent symptoms: Such as nasal congestion, sneezing, itching, or skin rashes that do not respond to over-the-counter medications.
Chronic respiratory issues: Such as asthma or recurrent respiratory infections that may be triggered by allergens.
Suspected food allergies: If you have adverse reactions to specific foods, such as hives, swelling, or gastrointestinal discomfort, allergy testing can help identify the culprit.
Skin reactions: If you develop unexplained skin reactions, such as eczema, hives, or dermatitis, that may be triggered by allergens in the environment.
If you suspect that you have allergies or if your symptoms significantly impact your quality of life, consult with our Arlington allergists. We can assess your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and recommend appropriate allergy testing to determine specific triggers and develop a personalized treatment plan.
How Do We Test for Allergies?
We offer allergy testing with either a blood test or a skin test. During a skin test, your provider pricks your skin and dabs on the suspected allergen. They perform this test on the back of your arm or your upper back. It causes little to no pain. This is called skin prick testing, and it’s the most common.
In another kind of skin test, your provider injects a small amount of the suspected allergen into the skin of your arm. Both the skin-prick and skin-injection testing look for signs of several different allergens at one time.
In some cases, you might need a blood test if you have a skin condition, such as eczema or psoriasis, or if your provider is testing for a powerful allergen that might cause a significant reaction.
What Is Patch Testing?
Patch testing is a diagnostic procedure in which we test for allergies without using needles. Instead, we place various skin patches containing possible allergens on your skin. During the test, skin gets exposed to 20-30 different extracts that contain tiny amounts of certain medications, fragrances, latex, hair dyes, preservatives, and other substances that can cause allergic reactions in some people.
