"[Allergies] can be brutal sometimes, but in a few instances, I'll test someone who thinks they are allergic to something, but it turns out that they are allergic to something else entirely," says Certified Physician Assistant, Chris Montoya.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
For many, over-the-counter allergy medications simply do not work, which is why TPC Family Medicine now provides testing of the skin in order to determine what exactly is causing one's sneezing, congestion and itchy, watery eyes. Skin tests are conducted by applying small samples of allergen to one's skin, then several days later, a delayed reaction might be present that will help the doctor determine the type of allergy present. It's a very safe and generally painless test and can be done on kids with allergies as early as 1 year of age.
"We're happy to be offering allergy testing for our patients. San Antonio's high pollen count can be brutal sometimes, but in a few instances, I'll test someone who thinks they are allergic to this pollen, but it turns out that they are allergic to something else entirely," says Certified Physician Assistant, Chris Montoya. "This skin test will let us know exactly which allergens are affecting you."
