Allergy Testing and Evaluation
There are hundreds of substances that can trigger allergic reactions, which can make it difficult to figure out exactly what is causing you to sneeze, have a runny nose, or experience general congestion. At The Allergy and Asthma Center of Corpus Christi, we offer a wide variety of tests that are designed to pinpoint what is triggering your body to react so that we can provide the right solution to alleviate your symptoms.
Allergic rhinitis, more commonly known as hay fever, is a diagnosis that is associated with a group of symptoms that affect your nose. There are so many different things that can cause a reaction in your nasal passage that this term is used to cover a wide array of possible triggers. Anything you breathe in, such as dirt, animal dander, or pollen, and causes an allergic reaction, is called allergic rhinitis or seasonal allergy.
Asthma affects more than three million Americans each year. It is a chronic lung disease that makes it harder to move air in and out of your lungs. Asthma is more than just a frustration, it is a very serious condition and can be life-threatening. With proper treatment, however, asthma is manageable.
Contact dermatitis refers to the reaction that your skin has when it comes in contact with an allergen such as soap, cosmetics, fragrances, jewelry, and plants. While not necessarily life threatening, it can be very uncomfortable and irritating. Allergy testing can help identify the cause of your reaction so that you can better manage your environment.
