Allergy Testing in Tacoma, WA

Allergy Testing in Tacoma, WA

Kids or adults who have allergies may experience a plethora of unpleasant symptoms. These symptoms can manifest in a number of ways and can worsen over time — which is why it’s so important to get tested in order to identify allergies. 

Types of Allergy Testing 

Some of the types of allergy tests include: 

  • Scratch test. This is the most common type of allergy testing and is where your doctor or nurse places a small amount of the allergen on the surface of your skin and then administers a small prick to the skin to see if the allergen causes inflammation. 
  • Blood test. If you are unable to do a scratch test, a blood sample will be taken and tested to see if you have allergies.
  • Food allergy testing. There are several ways to test for food allergies including elimination diets or oral tests. 

Where To Get Allergy Testing For Children

When it comes to infant allergy testing, your child’s pediatrician can perform the test for you. Symptoms such as sleep disturbances, asthma, skin rashes, coughing, and runny nose are all indicators of allergies and should be investigated if they persist.

Patients Love What We Do!

Dr. Young is AMAZING! I can darn near crawl into his office with a thrown out back then with some treatment and manipulation walk out in comfort. I really like the fact he takes his time to explain in detail what the problems are that I am facing and give me the correct recommendations for solving my tweeks and pulled muscles. Highly Recommended

Yelp Review

I am a true testament to the care under Dr. Young. I’ve been going to this facility for about 3 years. The treatment plans have made a huge Improvement in my life. The gut cleanse body detox and essential oils have also made a big impact on my life and my health. I’m truly grateful for not only getting good care but getting educated on the body and the mind. I really appreciate the people at this office.
