What is a Children’s Allergy Panel Test?
Allergy occurs when the immune system interprets as harmful a foreign substance that is harmless to most people. When you are allergic, the immune system overreacts to the allergen by producing antibodies such as IgE immunoglobulins.
Why get a Children’s Allergy Panel Test?
- If you have severe earache, headaches and itchy eyes.
- If there is a risk of an allergic reaction to a very small amount of allergen.
- If you are being treated with antihistamines or other medicines.
