An allergy can be triggered by anything including animal hair, dust mites, or grass pollen. Whatever the stimulus, an allergic reaction happens when your body overacts to it. Your immune system puts up its defenses when it believes your system is being attacked. The symptoms that come out are signs that it is doing its best to protect your body and eliminate the allergy trigger from the healthy environment.

There are different ways to tell if you are having an allergic reaction. Sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, and sinus headaches are the most common. Asthma and skin rashes also happen in some cases. Ear infection, eye irritation, and muscle or joint pain are more serious. These prompt you to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
There are people who experience mental problems (like slow thinking and forgetfulness) or respiratory diseases (like chronic coughs and recurrent bronchitis). Although they can still be considered allergy symptoms, they may be indicative of other health conditions. The only way to find out about their cause is to take a comprehensive allergy test.
An allergic reaction can happen because of any type of trigger. These triggers, however, fall into four different categories: animal dander, dust mites, mold and mildew, and pollen. If you experienced any of the above mentioned symptoms, you can find out about the trigger using our allergy test. It is a painless skin test that provides answers in just 15 minutes.
Testing positive in the skin test allows you to learn about your condition and get the allergy treatment you need. Doctors Express offers sublingual immunotherapy to effectively reduce your sensitivity to allergens. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration and safe to take with your allergy medications.
