Allergies are becoming more and more common in today’s modern society, and among the most frequent types of allergies are hay fever, watery eyes, respiratory problems and skin allergies in the form of itchy rashes or eczema. These symptoms are a reaction to the body’s natural defense system to defend itself against certain, normally harmless, environmental substances (allergens). The symptoms can range from a slight body reaction to more debilitating conditions.
Diagnosis & Tests
To specifically diagnose an allergy problem and to determine the appropriate treatment, our dermatology specialist Dr. Radmila Lukian will utilize a certain allergy test as well as acquire a detailed and comprehensive evaluation of any signs and symptoms that may be indicative of an allergy.
