Convenient On-Site Allergy Testing
At Centennial Medical, our physicians understand that allergies can be extremely bothersome, which is why our center is proud to be able to offer on-site allergy testing for all patients!
Our medical center is also able to treat acute allergic reactions. Symptoms of these typical allergic reactions include:
- Stuffy or running nose
- Itchy eyes
- Itchy skin or hives
These symptoms are usually treated with a prescribed antihistamine to alleviate the severity of symptoms. Some antihistamines are able to be purchased over-the-counter at a pharmacy, however, prescription antihistamines treat for a broader range of allergy symptoms.
What should I know about allergy testing vs. allergy treatment?
Allergy testing is a great way to ensure that you and your family members are aware of any potential allergy triggers and risks. Conversely, allergy treatment is the process of a doctor or medical provider alleviating the immediate symptoms of an allergic reaction. For mild allergic reactions, urgent care is a suitable option. However, a life-threatening allergy may require emergency medical services.
Please remember, if someone is suffering from a severe allergic reaction, they should be taken to the nearest emergency room as soon as possible, rather than our facility.
If you have any questions regarding the allergy testing services Centennial Medical offers, please contact our center at 410-730-3399.
