Allergy Tests and Allergy Vaccines
Allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction of the immune system to any substance. Many substances which are normally not harmfull for the human body can lead to hypersensitivity reactions in allergic people. Allergic diseases are more common in developed countries and the increase in air pollution, damp climate, stress and several food additivites increase the frequency of allergy. Allergies to house dust mites, tree and grass pollens, fungus, pet hairs and some food substances that are common types of allergies can be detected with allergic (prick) skin tests and blood analysis. In Allergic Asthma and Allergic Rhinitis patients when a positive result is detected in prick skin test, our department offers seasonal or perennial allergy vaccination treatment (immunotherapy).
