You need to get an extended panel of allergens tested to know what your allergies are.
This can be done in the form of skin tests (but you need to stop all your current medications for 2 weeks) or get a blood test
done (stopping medicines is not necessary), called specific IgE test.
You have allergic rhinitis/asthma
, and vaccination
(which is called allergen-specific immunotherapy
) can be done only after the allergens are known.
This immunotherapy can be done in the form of injections or drops under the tongue, and needs a minimum of 3 years for it to have full effect that lasts as long as 10 years.
Many patients find they can stop all medications (allergy
medications), while other patients find that they work much better than they used to before.
You have to get in touch with your local allergist to discuss the above options.
