Testing and Treatment for Patients Throughout Northeast Florida

Allergy Testing Jacksonville, FL

Allergies and allergic reactions are your body’s immune system responding to something it thinks is attacking it.

When your immune system senses an allergen, such as pollen, it identifies the pollen as an “invader” and then your immune system mounts a response. This response is your immune system overreacting and producing antibodies called Immunoglobulin E (or IgE). These antibodies then cause cells throughout your body to release other chemicals, causing the allergic reaction many are familiar with. The only way to know for certain if you are allergic to something is through formal allergy testing.

Allergy testing is typically accomplished by either an allergy blood test or skin test.

Traditional allergic skin testing remains the most direct and comprehensive way to diagnose allergies and has distinct advantages over blood testing. Unlike the blood test, allergy skin test results return within minutes—and most importantly, while you are in the office. This allows the allergist to immediately formulate a personalized treatment plan the same day as your allergy test. In contrast, blood allergy test results may take up to two weeks to return and will require an additional appointment to review the results and discuss treatment option, which can delay treatment.

Skin testing also has the advantage of allowing the allergist to test for the all the local environmental allergens specific to our Northeast Florida region.
