They can affect your overall level of energy and cause problems such as:

  • Rashes on your skin
  • Upset stomach
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing

How are Allergies Diagnosed?

In many cases, allergies can be diagnosed based on the history of your illness. There are specific tests for allergies that can be done in a doctor’s office.

How are Allergies Treated?

Allergies are often treated with medicines taken by mouth or through an inhaler. Sometimes people are treated for allergies with shots.
