What do allergies and asthma have in common outside of making people miserable? For starters, asthma and allergies have many of the same triggers and symptoms. Dust mites, pet dander, and pollen all trigger asthma and allergies, and as a result, it makes it difficult to determine what a person is suffering from (outside of making an educated guess). The human body sees allergens as a threat even though the substance is harmless for other people. Because the body identifies allergens as harmful, it creates antibodies to protect itself. The antibodies bind to allergen particles that cause a person to exhibit symptoms (runny nose, coughing, or nasal congestion). Skin reactions are also a possibility. A person's reactions that include airways, lungs, and breathing functions are considered asthma symptoms. The best allergist Mt. Laurel has to offer can help you and your loved ones.
Allergy and asthma testing South Jersey are designed to understand how the immune system reacts/overreacts to specific common allergens. Testing is done in several ways to determine which substances trigger an individual's allergy symptoms to flare up. Allergens that cause a reaction are called triggers. To determine if a person needs testing, they should keep a close eye on how they feel and know the common symptoms of allergies and asthma. Typically, people come for testing once they suspect they are suffering. Most insurance companies cover allergy testing, and the initial tests are quick and non-invasive. There is some discomfort (itching, swelling, and redness) that a person experiences during testing, but those are minimal and often go away quickly after the tests are performed. Once a person gets tested, they will know exactly what causes allergies and how to treat them. Only when a person knows what causes allergies and asthma can they begin to treat it.
