Concierge MD offers simple, convenient delivery allergy testing that helps you identify the cause and treatment options for your allergies.
What are Allergies?
Your immune system is primed to protect you against viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. An allergic response, the collection of physical symptoms that manifests after exposure to an allergic trigger, occurs when your body’s immune system responds to a perceived threat.
While allergies are not harmful to you, they can be very uncomfortable and distracting, which is especially problematic for high-performing professionals, students, and busy parents who can’t afford to compromise their full attention.
What are the Most Common Allergens?
Because an allergic reaction occurs when your body responds to something it views as a threat, you might come into contact with hundreds of potential allergens in a given day.
The most common allergens include:
- Mold and mildew
- Pet hair and dander
In addition to these, certain types of fabric or plastics, especially latex, can trigger allergies in some people. Insect stings, laundry detergents, and fragrances added to beauty or cleaning products can cause symptoms of allergies in others.
Without a lab test, it could take months or years of trial and error to determine what is triggering your allergies. At-home allergy testing takes out the question by identify exactly what is causing your immune system to react.
