Skin prick tests

One of the diagnostic methods to identify the triggering allergen may be skin prick tests. Skin prick test results should be interpreted by your doctor based on clinical symptoms, medical history, and, where necessary, other test results in order to assess possible allergy to a specific allergen (source: www.allergyuk.org (last accessed on May 11, 2016).; Heinzerling et al. The skin prick test – European standards. Clinical and Translational Allergy 2013, 3:3.).

Stallergenes Greer has over a century of allergen immunotherapy experience and expertise. The company’s expertise ranges from a broad portfolio of testing extracts which allow to test for a wide range of allergies, to testing devices.

It is important to be properly diagnosed in order to receive adequate medical care. If left untreated, allergic rhinitis symptoms themselves can worsen, leading to a spiral of worsening co-existing conditions (source: Hadley JA, et al. Comorbidities and allergic rhinitis: Not just a runny nose. J Fam Pract 2012;61(2):S11-5).

The diagnosis of respiratory allergies is based on clinical history, physical examination, allergy tests and specific questions (source: www.allergyuk.org (last accessed on May 11, 2016); Valovirta E, EFA Book on Respiratory Allergies - Raise Awareness, Relieve the Burden. www.efanet.org (last accessed on May 18, 2016).

Identifying the causal allergen can be an important step in taking control of your allergy, allowing you to reduce exposure to those substances that trigger your symptoms (source: www.allergyuk.org (last accessed on May 11, 2016).
