Allergic Rhinitis (also known as hay fever or allergies) is an allergic reaction that may cause sneezing, runny and itchy nose, congestion and sore throat. This causes people to feel pretty awful and make it difficult to function. Relief can be obtained with avoidance of the trigger, certain lifestyles changes, allergy medications or immunotherapy (allergy shots). Allergic Rhinitis can be diagnosed with either a simple blood test measuring immunoglobulin E (IgE). This test can detect a wide variety of allergies. Alternatively allergies can be diagnosed with a skin prick test where a small amount of a variety of allergens is placed carefully onto the skin to look for which ones the body reacts to. Your provider can best help determine which test is right for you.
