Using Allergy Testing to Identify Allergens

Conducting an allergy test is the best, and only, way to pinpoint which exact allergens are causing your allergies. This type of testing may be time-consuming and somewhat uncomfortable, but it is important to identify what allergens cause a disturbance to your body. When the allergens are identified, healthcare professionals can create customized treatment plans that help improve your overall health and find allergy relief.

There are two types of allergy tests that can be used: needle testing or needle-free testing, known as electrodermal screening. Both of these tests take specific allergens — such as molds; inhalants such as dust or animal dander; pollen, chemicals, food sensitivities and hormones — and introduce them to the body. If the body reacts to a specific allergen, it is assumed that is what is responsible for the allergies.
