Is Allergy Desensitization Right for You?
If you suffer from allergies, you owe it to yourself to give allergy desensitization a try. Innovative Family Health has a simple testing procedure that won’t leave you hurt and itching. Furthermore, recent breakthroughs in treatment allow for a simpler desensitization process.
Allergy Testing at Our Clinic
Allergy testing doesn’t have to hurt. If you have heard about testing that leaves your skin inflamed or itching, you’ll be happy to know that Innovative Family Health doesn’t use that method of testing.
The goal is to determine what substances trigger your allergies. However, our process doesn’t expose you to allergens. Instead, we use a blood test. Using a small sample of your blood obtained from a finger stick, the lab looks for allergy-causing antibodies and allergen sensitivity.
Once we know the triggers for your allergies, we can proceed with a personalized treatment plan.
Common Allergy Triggers and Symptoms
The world is full of possible allergy triggers. Here are just a few:
- Cat dander
- Dog hair
- Dust mites
Allergy symptoms may be a constant bother or a big threat. It depends on the allergen trigger. The level of reaction will dictate how aggressively the allergy must be treated. If you experience any of these symptoms, allergies may be the reason:
- Itchy eyes
- Itchy nose
- Watery eyes
- Asthma attacks
- Sore throat
- Swelling of the tongue or throat
- Swelling of the face
- Swelling at the contact point (stings)
- Stomach upset
