ALLERGY TESTING NEWPORT BEACH CA

Allergy Testing for Children and Adults in Newport Beach, CA

Allergy Testing Newport Beach CAIf a quick stroll outside triggers a sneezing fit, you may benefit from allergy testing. Painless and quickly performed, an allergy test will identify what specific allergens are at the root of any uncomfortable immune responses. If you live in the Newport Beach, California, area, and would like to find relief for your allergy troubles, visit Marque Urgent Care. Our family of physician-led immediate care clinics also offers comprehensive wellness services, including allergy testing that is performed and analyzed on-site.

At Marque Urgent Care, we administer “scratch tests” to determine what substances prompt an allergic response. During this test, a physician will apply very small amounts of antigens (substances that may trigger an allergic response) to a portion of the skin (usually the back). If the patient develops any redness or itching shortly after an antigen is applied, he or she is considered allergic to that antigen.

Our physicians test for a wide range of allergens that often affect children and adults in Newport Beach and surrounding areas of Southern California. These allergens include:

  • Epidermal allergens
  • Indoor perennial allergens
  • Mold allergens
  • Grass allergens
  • Tree allergens
  • Weed allergens
  • Select food allergens

Once we have completed the allergy testing and have determined what is prompting your allergic reactions, your physician will answer any questions you may have and suggest possible solutions. Oftentimes, our physicians prescribe allergy drops, which are also referred to as sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). These drops are custom blended to address each patient’s specific allergies and dissolve quickly under the tongue.

Contact a Marque Urgent Care location in the Newport Beach, CA, area today to schedule your allergy testing appointment. We have extended weekend and weekday hours to accommodate our patients’ busy schedules. Please refrain from taking antihistamines or beta blockers 72 hours prior to your appointment. In total, allergy testing takes just over one hour to complete.
