This test checks for Inhalant allergies.
Allergies are damaging immune responses by the body to otherwise harmless substances. The body considers these substances to be foreign and produces antibodies that attack these substances.
Inhalant allergens include pollens from grass, trees, weeds, mold spores and dust. These often cause red irritated eyes, constant sneezing, runny nose etc.
Why Get Tested
The severities of allergies vary from person to person and range from minor irritations to anaphylaxis (shock) -- a potentially life-threatening emergency. It is important to identify allergic reactions, to allow for early treatment and avoid life-threatening situations.
Inhalant allergies could cause Asthma, a leading allergic reaction that could be life-threatening. World Health Organisation estimates that 300 million individuals have asthma worldwide.
