Do you suffer from chronic sneezing, stuffy nose, watery eyes and itchy throat? Allergic reactions like these are primarily caused by certain triggers in the surrounding environment. Pollen, mold and animal dander are some common triggers that lead to an allergic reaction, but many people who suffer from allergies don’t know exactly which triggers are to blame for their seasonal or year-round discomfort.
Luckily, Dr. Valeri Roth offers a simple test to determine your allergic triggers: allergy skin testing. Allergy skin testing provides valuable data in determining your allergic triggers by applying a number of allergens to small scratches or pricks in the skin, usually on the arm. If you are allergic to a specific allergen, your skin will slightly puff up or swell at the spot where the allergen was applied. By determining your specific allergies, Dr. Valeri Roth is able to create a specific treatment plan to provide relief for your allergy-inducing discomfort.
Once Dr. Roth determines your specific allergy triggers, she will work with you to create a customized treatment plan for your specific allergy needs. From nasal sprays and allergy pills to immunotherapy or allergy shots, Dr. Roth offers a full range of allergy treatment options to help with your allergy needs.
