Allergy Test

What is an Allergy Test?

Healthcare specialist doctors perform allergy tests in order to check whether our immune system is overreacting to certain substances called allergens or not. If you have an allergic reaction, it means that you do have an allergy.

A person can have an allergy to various environmental factors such as dust, pollen, mold or pet dander. Some individuals even have an allergic reaction to latex or bee stings. People who have food allergies such as milk, peanut or soy, etc may not be able to tolerate these food products.

The allergy test in Pakistan is a diagnostic test that helps medical practitioners to get to know the overall health of an individual.

When is an Allergy Test Performed?

A medical practitioner would recommend an allergy test if you have an allergy to the allergens in the air such as pollen (pollen allergy), dust or pet dander, which can lead to allergic rhinitis (hay fever). This allergic reaction can lead to 

  • Headaches
  • Sneezing, nasal congestion, or runny nose
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing or chronic cough
  • Watery or itchy eyes
  • Sore throat

In the case of food allergies, people may experience symptoms after 30 minutes to hours after eating food. They develop symptoms like:

  • Skin Symptoms - Swelling of tongue, lips, face, and overall itching on the face.
  • Respiratory Symptoms - Coughing, chest or throat tightness, wheezing, shortness of breath, etc.
  • Cardiovascular Symptoms - Pale skin, dizziness, weak pulse, lightheadedness.
  • GI Symptoms - Nausea, vomiting, cramps, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, etc.

If a person is allergic to fragrances, latex, or metals (nickel etc), he/she may suffer from contact dermatitis. It is a skin allergy reaction and it can lead to:

  • Blisters or burning sensations on the skin
  • Swelling and hives
  • Rashes and itchy skin

In this case, a patch test is done by the dermatologist to diagnose this type of allergy test.

How to Interpret the Allergy Test Results?

The results of the allergy test are interpreted as: 

  • Positive Allergy Test - It means that you suffer from an allergy to that certain substance or allergens. It is possible to have a false positive allergy test, especially in the case of blood (IgE) hence even if the test is positive, you may not necessarily have an allergy to that substance. 
  • Negative Allergy Test - It means that you don’t have any allergies. The chances of having an incorrect or false-negative allergy test are rare.
