Avatar n tn My pediatrician wants me to take my son for allergy testing, but his only symptom is coughing. He has no other symptoms, has had a chest and sinus X-ray, which were normal.

Avatar f tn Allergy testing in children is not terribly reliable, my son's doctor says. She says they can come up as sensitive to something that in real life they don't actually react to, and not show as sensitive to something that the parents know from observation that they are allergic to. She says it is better to just observe carefully, and test by experimenting with one food at a time.

Avatar f tn is generally used as the control for intradermal testing). After the testing I was told I showed no allergies, but to still use caution. As a result, I haven't eaten any nuts & am pretty much petrified that they could appear in any foods I eat.

Avatar n tn Hello, As you have tested negative for the sea foods on allergy testing,so it might be that you are allergic to any of the ingredients or preservatives in which it was cooked.Same ingredient or preservative may have been used in the mushrooms or hamburger. However anything can be said with confirmation only after allergy testing. Skin tests are used for this purpose. This test involves pricking, scratching or injecting food extracts into the patient’s skin.
Avatar m tn I have seen a new allergy doctor recently. 48 hours ago, I went for a visit for allergy skin testing. They performed the skin ***** test on my forearms then proceeded to do intradermal skin testing. I was allergic to all intradermal tests except dogs. This is not the first time I've had skin testing done so this was what I expected. I have attempted to google delayed reactions and intradermal skin test but not results.

Avatar f tn and that he is dizzy. The ENT has told him that he just has a sensative nose since all kinds of testing have came back negative. He now has an Air Rite person coming to our house and doing testing for "bad air" in our house because our house is too energy efficient. This has been going on for over 7 years and it's driving me crazy. I would be willing to stick behind him but doctors and I have done everything we can to help.HELP!
