Allergy Testing

Dedicate yourself to a higher quality of healthcare!

Allergy Testing

Allergies are immune system reactions to generally innocuous substances such as pollen, certain foods, or pet dander. When an allergic person is exposed to these triggers, their immune system overreacts, leading to symptoms like sneezing, itching, or something more severe..When it comes to managing your allergies, the first step is identifying the specific allergens that trigger your symptoms. This is where allergy testing comes into play. CareFront’s testing process allows for tailored treatment plans and strategies to manage and avoid exposure to these allergens.

Our Allergy Testing Services at CareFront Medical Group

Undergoing comprehensive allergy testing allows your primary care physician to accurately diagnose your allergens and determine the best treatment options. Let’s look at the broad range of allergy testing services CareFront offers.

Skin Tests
Skin tests typically involve pricking or scratching the skin with small amounts of allergens and monitoring for an allergic reaction. Skin tests are usually painless and provide immediate results.

Blood Tests
Blood tests, also known as allergen-specific IgE tests, measure the levels of specific antibodies in your blood that are triggered by allergens.

Intradermal Test
In this test, the allergens are injected under the skin. Intradermal tests are more sensitive and may be used if the skin prick test results are inconclusive.

Patch Test
This test is used to identify contact allergens that may be causing skin reactions.

Ongoing Support
At CareFront we offer ongoing support, monitoring, and follow-up care to ensure the effectiveness of your treatment plan. Regular appointments allow your primary care physician to track your progress and make any necessary adjustments.
