How do I Know if I Have an Allergy?
You may have an allergy and not even know it, or your allergy symptoms may be so pronounced that they interrupt your daily routine and impact your quality of life. Regardless of the severity of symptoms, people who suffer from asthma or allergies deserve relief. Dr. Atul Shah of The Center for Asthma & Allergy specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of allergies. Treatment for any allergies begins with a detailed medical history and effective allergy testing, to pinpoint the exact cause of your allergic symptoms. Allergy testing may involve skin tests and/or blood tests. Whichever type of allergy testing your doctor recommends, testing is the first step in diagnosing your allergies and finding the right treatments for you.
Allergy testing can help to determine what triggers your allergies. Treatments for those triggers will vary from person to person, so what works for a family member or neighbor might not be right for you. Remember to always consult an allergy specialist, if you think you may be suffering from allergies. It is not safe to self-medicate long term or take allergy medication prescribed for someone else. If you suffer from allergies, treatments are available that can alleviate or eliminate your symptoms.
