Allergy Test - what is it and how the test is done
The environment around us is not as clean and pure as it should be. Knowing this, we all should understand that not all of us are the same and that our bodies react and perceive differently to different triggers and stimuli around us. Many people are sensitive and different substances have different effects on them. For example, smoke, pollen, animal dander, and fur can greatly exacerbate the asthma of a susceptible patient. Similarly, other substances such as drugs or medicine can also cause allergies or reactions to occur in some other susceptible patients. For this reason, it is always recommended to get allergy sensitivity tests done so that doctors can find beforehand which a person is sensitive towards and therefore, could avoid prescribing that particular drug to that patient. For asthmatic patients, doctors either prescribe a known anti-allergy drug that helps them keep their allergies at bay and prevents their episodes from occurring at the unlikeliest of times.
