Allergy Testing

Allergy testing is the procedure used to determine which particular substances (called allergens) are responsible for causing an allergic reaction. Allergy testing would rarely be conducted on athletes, though it can be useful as part of their health screening. Allergy tests would usually be conducted after symptoms are noted. The symptoms of allergies may include the following: skin rashes, swelling, sneezing and running nose, red and itchy eyes, asthma, nausea and vomiting, and the severe allergic reaction - anaphylaxis.
