Symptoms alone can’t tell

How do you know whether you or child’s symptoms are caused by allergy or not - and if so, to what exactly? Maybe you or your child has already received a diagnosis, but has it been validated by a test?

Ask your doctor about a blood test for allergy

A blood test will help your doctor determine if you or your child is allergic, what you are allergic to and may even rule out allergy. Knowing what's causing your child’s symptoms is important since treatment differs for different conditions. The right diagnosis and early treatment of allergies can also help prevent potentially serious complications of allergies from developing, such as ear infections, sinusitis and asthma. Allergies are life changing, and they are not easy to deal with. This is why accurate and safe allergy testing is so important.

If you suspect allergies as the cause of your or your child’s symptoms it is important to see your doctor to have an allergy test - to find relief that’s just right for you.
