What does an allergy clinic do?

  • Confirm your allergies
    Your symptoms may not necessarily occur due to allergies. There may be other reasons responsible for them such as infections. Our skin allergy specialist in Indore will run some allergy tests to determine whether or not you have allergies.
  • Find your triggers
    If you know what things trigger your allergic reactions or what you are allergic to, you can take steps to avoid those triggers. At the allergy clinic, you will be given some allergy tests so that your specific allergies are identified and you can take steps to avoid them.
  • Formulate a treatment plan
    After your allergy has been diagnosed and the specific triggers have been identified, a treatment plan tailored to your condition will be formulated. It will include guidelines on the things and situations you need to avoid, the timing and dosage of the medications you need to take, and what steps to take in case of an episode of serious allergic reaction.
  • Check that you have the right medicine
    If you are diagnosed with allergies, you might be already taking some over-the-counter or prescription medications. An allergist can monitor your symptoms and then advise you on your medications to make sure you are taking the right ones.
  • Control your symptoms
    If your allergy symptoms are making you feel uncomfortable, you can visit the allergy clinic to allow an expert to help tame your symptoms and even stop an allergic reaction before it starts.

What are the allergy tests done at the clinic?

  • Skin Prick Test
    A skin prick test is done to diagnose skin, food, respiratory, and ophthalmic allergies with standard allergens. A small amount of the suspected allergen is taken and placed on your skin to look for response. The result is evident after only 20 minutes and the process is absolutely painless.
  • Spirometry
    This test is specially performed to diagnose and monitor bronchial asthma. You will be directed to blow into some pipes so that we can see how bad or well-controlled your asthma is.
  • Skin patch test
    This test is specifically performed to diagnose and know the cause of contact dermatitis. A tiny amount of the suspected allergen is placed on a small area on your arm and then it is covered with a bandage. Our allergy specialist in Indore  may even apply a patch with the allergen on a small portion of your skin, ask you to keep it on, and then return within 48-96 hours. He will then remove the bandage to look for a rash or any other adverse reaction.
  • Blood (IgE) test
    A sample of your blood is collected and forwarded to the laboratory, where a small amount of allergen is added to it. Then, the IgE test is conducted to measure the IgE levels in the blood sample.
