Nasal allergy causing distress?
Allergic disorders affect around 10 to 30% of the population. The most effective treatment for allergic rhinitis is avoidance of contact with the allergen (substance causing allergic response ). Intradermal or intracutaneous allergy skin test is employed in our institution to detect the sensitivity of the individual to aeroallergens. These aero allergens are the main cause for allergic rhinitis, asthma and allergic conjunctivitis. Testing for food allergy is also done in our institution. These tests can be very helpful in specifically identifying causes of allergies. Separate skin test kits are available for adults and children. These tests are performed in the presence of an Allergy specialist. These tests are simple and take about one hour. The person has to avoid contact with the allergen and if that is not possible, then a medication for allergy is prescribed. Immunotherapy can be used as the last resort.
