Allergy Testing & Treatment in Carrollton, TX • Insurance Accepted
Allergy Testing and Treatment in Carrollton, TX: Over 50 million people in the United States suffer from allergies. Finding out what each patient is allergic to is the first step to effective allergy treatment at Trinity Integrated Medical. Fortunately, allergy shots are more convenient and accurate than they have ever been before. When combined with a detailed medical history, allergy testing at our facility can pinpoint the specific things that trigger allergic reactions in our patients.
Allergy testing can be done as a skin test or a blood test and is usually administered under the guidance of an allergy specialist. There are two different types of skin tests. The first is performed on the forearm or back of the patient. A variety of suspected allergens are tested at once during this procedure. Redness or swelling will show on the test spot if you have a reaction to one of the allergens. In the second type of test, the doctor injects a small trace of each allergen into the skin of the arm.
Positive reactions to allergens typically appear within 20 minutes for both types of tests. There is sometimes a delayed reaction to an allergen which should be reported to the doctor if it appears after your visit. Children of any age as well as adults can be tested, so it’s never too late to test for allergies.
