Very excited to get these results! If you are closely related to me, then these results might give you an idea of what you *might* also be allergic to.
Here's a list of my top allergies:
- Live Oak
- Bahia grass
- Bermuda grass
- Johnson grass
- Timothy grass
- Dust mites
- Mold (alternaria alternata)
Surprisingly, I'm not allergic to Cedar and am thus immune to Cedar Fever which affects a lot of Texans.
The allergy test was a lot less uncomfortable than it may look! It's true that my back was very itchy during the 15 minutes I had to wait for allergens to react with my skin, but then they came and gave me liquid Zyrtec, and washed my back off with alcohol, and put on anti-itch cream. Then I was pretty much back to normal except my back felt warmer than usual, but not uncomfortable at all. Basically, if you can sit for 15 minutes with an itchy back, you can do an allergy test like this.
I'm looking forward to starting allergen immunotherapy shots next week. Fortunately, the allergy clinic is literally across the street from our apartments, so I will be able to just walk over if I need to for my shots.
Yay modern medicine!
