Allergy Diagnosis

Why Visit An Allergy Clinic

At the Allergy Clinic in Houston, patients receive state-of-the-art testing and treatment to identify specific allergens and ensure that other problems that could arise, such as asthma, are under good control. Patients decide to visit our allergy clinic when they have simply had enough of their symptoms and over-the-counter medicines are no longer helpful. In this case, our ENT/allergy physicians will ask detailed questions about signs and symptoms and then perform either a skin allergy test or blood test to determine the best course of treatment. Treatments could include avoiding allergens, medicines that reduce symptoms, immunotherapy, or emergency epinephrine

Symptoms of Allergies

Symptoms will vary depending on the allergen, as well as how that individual is exposed. For nasal and skin allergies, symptoms include:

  • Water Eyes
  • Itchy Eyes
  • itchy-nose-allergy
  • Sneezing
  • Fatigue or Malaise
  • Rashes

Allergies to food can cause cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting. If an insect was the culprit, there may be redness, swelling, and pain in the area. Generally, symptoms can range from very mild to life-threatening. Our goal at the Allergy Clinic in Houston is to identify which allergens are most dangerous and prescribe any medications that could help prevent symptoms.
