HOUSE DUST I ALLERGY TEST
A skin test is conducted to determine exactly what is triggering an allergic reaction, which involves using a small, sterile probe to prick the skin with extracts from common allergens, such as tree pollen and pet dander and observing the reaction. A positive reaction may show as a huge or a bump on the location where the prick has been made and it will indicate that you are allergic to that substance. Sometimes, a blood test and a skin test is required to confirm an allergy.
Dust allergies at home usually occur after sweeping or vacuuming and manifest as symptoms like sneezing, a stuffy or runny nose, or cause the eyes to itch or become red and watery.
