what is Allergy Testing?
When your body detects a foreign substance, antibodies trigger the release of chemicals, like histamine. This reaction leads to an allergic reaction, like rashes, itching, swelling, or other undesirable effects. For most people, allergy symptoms are mild, but others experience chronic, severe, or life-threatening symptoms. Our lab experts at Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology in West Bridgewater, MA perform routine allergy testing. We typically offer blood tests or skin (scratch) tests to help board-certified internist Dr. John K. Terzian to identify which food or substance is causing your symptoms. Contact our team to schedule an appointment, and learn more about the allergy tests we offer.
what to expect from allergy testing
The easiest way to avoid complications is by reducing exposure to the known substances that trigger allergy attacks and the risk of severe reactions and anaphylaxis. Our allergy testing team conducts tests for food allergies, pets, hay fever, mold, dust, latex, mites, insects, allergies to medications, and more. Skin tests involve pricks to the skin to expose you to small amounts of proteins found in specific allergens that may reveal an allergy if it reacts with irritated, red, swollen bumps. We may perform an intradermal test, which introduces a small amount of the allergen solution by injecting it just under the skin in the dermal (second) layer. Blood tests require a blood sample to measure the amount of allergen-causing antibodies in the bloodstream. Our doctors will review your results and recommend treatment options, like medication or allergy shots.
