Allergy Testing & Treatment
We all know someone that suffers from one allergy or another. You might have an allergy and didn't even know it. Have you ever eaten something and not felt well after? Have you ever just started itching, sneezing, or suddenly had watery eyes? Below is a list of some of the more common symptoms.
- Eczema (atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis)
- Hives (urticaria) and or swelling (angioedema)
- Itchy, watery eyes (allergic conjunctivitis)
- Runny nose, sneezing
- Shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing
During physical examination, we may examine the ears, eyes, nose, throat, skin, and lungs. In some cases, a pulmonary function test is performed to determine how well you are able to expel air from the lungs.
