Seasonal Allergy Testing

Are your seasonal allergy symptoms becoming unbearable? If you have tried everything and you still cannot determine what is causing them, you should consider allergy testing with our otolaryngology team at Iowa River Landing. UI Health Care’s doctors and nurse practitioners can help identify your allergens and develop a plan to find relief from your symptoms.

Common seasonal allergy symptoms include:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Congestion
  • Itchy eyes
  • Puffy eyes
  • Red eyes
  • Watery eyes

How does allergy testing work?

Our physicians utilize a combination of scratch or prick tests as well as other intradermal skin tests. This allows them to determine what could be causing your allergies to flare.

Allergies in the Midwest could be caused by any of the following:

  • Grasses
  • Weeds
  • Trees
  • Molds
  • Dust mites
  • Pets and other animals

What happens after specific allergies are diagnosed?

Your treatment options will be personalized based on what your doctor discovers in your test results. These options may include:

  • Avoiding the allergen or cause of your allergies
  • Immunotherapy, including allergy shots and sublingual drops

If you’re ready to get some answers about your allergy symptoms, schedule an appointment to consult with our world-class care providers. They can answer what questions you have and determine if allergy testing is right for you.
