Allergy Testing near Ocean Springs, MS

Sometimes, half the battle of managing your allergies is figuring out what causes them. Once you’ve noted all your symptoms, allergy testing helps you and your doctor more accurately pinpoint what you’re allergic to.

At MSAAC, we offer diagnostic allergy testing that allows us to find what triggers your allergies for a more comprehensive, effective management plan. Our allergy testing methods can help you determine what food, seasonal, or environmental substances cause your allergic reactions.

We offer two types of allergy testing: Skin testing and patch testing.

In skin testing, your doctor pricks your skin with a small plastic device that’s been dipped in an allergen. After 15 minutes, your doctor checks for a reaction. This method of testing is good for testing for food or environmental allergens with fairly quick reaction times.

Patch testing, on the other hand, is designed for delayed-reaction allergies, such as allergies to dyes or detergents. Your doctor places patches covered in an allergen on your back, where they’re left for 48 to 72 hours. You then return to the doctor’s office to have the patches removed and your skin evaluated for reactions.

We offer all our allergy testing in-house in all of our five offices. Call today for an appointment!
