Hay Fever Screen (Rhinitis)
Allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever, like skin rashes and other allergies, is triggered when the body’s immune system becomes sensitized and overreacts to something in the environment that typically causes no problem in most people.
More than 40 million Americans suffer from hay fever. If you are one of them, you know how miserable it can be. This allergy often kicks up in spring (especially when flowers, trees, shrubs and weeds are blooming) and early fall, preventing enjoyment of the beauty of the seasons and the relaxation and recreation of many wonderful outdoor activities.
Hay fever symptoms can masquerade as the common cold. The common cold can’t be cured and must run its course. But if you have allergies, knowing their specific source can provide tools for effective management and treatment. For this reason, allergy testing is important for treatment. ARCpoint Labs of Worcester offers hay fever screening to determine which allergen specifically sets off your reaction and gives you “hay fever.”
