Allergies can start out as a minor discomfort and often become a more serious issue with time. Health Advantage Physical Medicine offers allergy testing to pinpoint the specific causes of a patient’s symptoms and provide information on how to avoid them moving forward. Allergies can present themselves in different ways in different people; the most common forms arise as breathing problems, but other signs that the body is being irritated by an outside factor can include hives, swelling, and nasal and sinus problems. Food allergies, insect stings, and drug and vaccine reactions are also common in many individuals. Environmental factors such as pollen, pet dander, grass, and mold can also be sources of irritation and allergic reaction. We can run tests to identify what each of our patients is reacting to, and use the results to avoid future allergic reactions.
