Skin Allergy Treatment FAQ in Walnut Creek, CA

What does a positive skin allergy test look like?

A positive result means you reacted to a substance. Your provider will see a red, raised area called a wheal. Often, a positive result means the symptoms you’re having are due to exposure to that substance. A stronger response means you are likely more sensitive to the substance.

What is the 48 hour skin allergy test?

An allergy patch test will take around 48 hours to complete. The doctor will apply the allergens, dishes or panels to keep the substances in place, and hypoallergenic tape during an appointment. These materials will stay in place for at least 48 hours, which should give the allergens enough time to develop reactions.

Why is my skin suddenly reacting to everything?

Maybe you ate a certain food or touched/inhaled something, like dust or certain plants. These things are called allergy triggers. The most common type of skin allergy is contact dermatitis, also called atopic dermatitis. It happens when you’re exposed to an irritant, such as laundry detergent, latex, or poison ivy.

What is the difference between an allergist and a dermatologist?

They diagnose and treat conditions ranging from allergies and asthma to immunodeficiencies and immunologic disorders. Both allergists and dermatologists do allergy testing, but an allergist usually tests for seasonal or year-round allergens, while a dermatologist can usually test for contact allergies.

What is the gold standard for diagnosing allergy?

To confirm your test results, your allergist may recommend an oral food challenge, which is the gold standard for food allergy diagnosis. However, the procedure can be costly, time-consuming, and in some cases is potentially dangerous, so it is not routinely performed.

What is the best medicine for skin allergy?

A skin prick test, also called a puncture or scratch test, checks for immediate allergic reactions to as many as 50 different substances at once. This test is usually done to identify allergies to pollen, mold, pet dander, dust mites and foods. In adults, the test is usually done on the forearm.

When should I be worried about itching?

Conditions that may cause itching are varied and include liver disease, kidney failure, iron deficiency anemia, thyroid problems, and even certain cancers in rare cases (leukemia, lymphoma). In these cases, itching will typically affect your whole body while your skin appears normal.

How do I get my skin back to normal after allergic reaction?

Bathe with cool or lukewarm water and gentle, fragrance-free cleansers. You can also take soothing colloidal oatmeal baths to help relieve symptoms. Immediately after bathing, use a gentle, hypoallergenic moisturizing cream to soothe skin. Use an over-the-counter corticosteroid cream on the irritated skin twice a day.
