We Offer Allergy Testing in Carlsbad
From a stuffy nose and sneezing to anaphylactic shock allergies can wreak havoc on your daily life. This is even more true when you aren’t sure what you’re allergic to. At our Carlsbad office, we offer comprehensive allergy testing.
Allergy tests are a crucial part of a treatment plan. They can reveal what to avoid and the best treatment options.
While skin tests can offer almost immediate answers, sometimes a blood test is necessary. For example, if you have extremely sensitive skin, a scratch test may yield a number of false positives, or if you’re on allergy medication a blood test might make more sense. Blood tests also can have false-positive results, but often will “rate” your response which can be helpful. Results take up to two weeks.
