    Environmental Allergies: Understanding Their Impact 

    Environmental allergies result from your immune system reacting to specific substances in your surroundings. While these substances are usually harmless if you don't have an allergy to them, if you have an allergy to these substances, your immune system can become hypersensitive to them. It's possible to be allergic to multiple substances simultaneously. 

    Upon initial exposure to an allergen, your body initiates the production of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies targeted at that specific allergen. This signifies that your body has developed a sensitivity to the particular allergen. When you encounter the allergen again, the antibodies in your bloodstream promptly activate, triggering the release of chemicals like histamine. This, in turn, leads to allergy symptoms, including hives, an itchy and runny nose, red and watery eyes, coughing, and migraines. Typically, these symptoms manifest within seconds or minutes.

    Overview of Everyday Environmental Allergens 

    The most common allergens in the environment include:


    • Pollen: One of the various compounds that might trigger allergies in humans is pollen. Pollens are microscopic spores from weeds, grass, and trees that resemble fine dust. Pollen levels are frequently at their peak in the morning. Pollen counts increase on hot, windy days. 

    • Moulds: Moulds are tiny fungi that generate airborne spores for reproduction. Mould is often found in moist areas with little to no airflow, such as your bathroom, kitchen or basement. Mould can grow outside in things like grass, mulch, hay, leaf piles, and under mushrooms.  

    • Pet Saliva and Dander: Pet dander is made up of tiny scales from your pet's skin, hair, or feathers. Your pet's sweat glands release proteins into their skin and fur, which might lead to an allergic reaction. Your pet's saliva also contains the proteins that cause an allergic reaction. 

    • Dust Mites: Dust mites, which are small spider-like creatures, subsist on the skin shed by both humans and pets. They are commonly found in mattresses, curtains, carpets, bedding, and upholstered furniture. Allergic reactions may occur if you inhale proteins from their remains, excrement, or urine. 

    • Cockroaches: Allergies can be induced by proteins present in cockroach excrement, saliva, eggs, and decomposing body parts. 

    • Smoke: Smoke can trigger responses in the body that resemble allergies, even though they do not involve the immune system's IgE antibodies. Smoke from various sources like marijuana, scented candles, and tobacco products such as cigarettes, cigars, and vapes can lead to irritation, creating symptoms that mimic an allergic reaction. 

    • Dust: Dust comprises tiny particles, encompassing dead skin cells, hair, pollen, textile fibres, dust mites, fragments of insects, dirt, pathogens, and other microscopic elements. 

    Environmental Allergy Test in Mumbai: Their Purpose and Advantages 

    Environmental allergy testing serves the purpose of identifying the underlying causes of allergic reactions that manifest with symptoms like sneezing, itching, or hives. Once the triggers are pinpointed, it becomes possible to take steps to avoid them, resulting in a more comfortable and symptom-free life. 

     

    Furthermore, by sharing this valuable information with your healthcare provider, they can tailor a specific treatment regimen to alleviate your symptoms. These treatments may include medications or even desensitisation injections designed to reduce your allergies over time. 

     

    Orange Health Labs offers a range of tests as a part of environmental allergy tests that screen for allergic reactions to 22 different allergens, categorised into 6 groups. The convenience of at-home testing is coupled with the assurance of accredited laboratory analysis, as our samples are processed in labs certified by the ICMR and NABL.  

    Allergy Testing for Environmental Allergens vs. Skin Prick Tests: A Comparison 

    Based on your symptoms and the potential allergens you might be exposed to, your doctor might recommend an allergy environmental panel test skin prick or IgE test to assist in diagnosing your environmental allergies. The differences between these two tests are as follows: 

    Skin Prick Test: 

    • In this test, your skin will be pricked with 10 to 50 different environmental allergens with a fine needle (lancet). If you happen to be allergic to any of these allergens, an allergic reaction will manifest within 15 minutes of exposure, and this reaction will be duly documented. 

    • While the skin prick test is a more cost-effective and quicker method for obtaining results compared to the IgE blood test, it does come with certain limitations. These include the restricted number of allergens that can be tested, challenges in obtaining consent from young children if they require a test, the requirement to discontinue specific medications prior to the test, and a slight risk of experiencing anaphylaxis, which is a severe and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. 

    IgE blood test (Environmental allergy panel test): 

    • In the course of this blood test, a small quantity of blood will be drawn from a vein in your arm using a thin needle. This blood sample is then forwarded to a laboratory for examination, where the response is gauged by the quantity of IgE antibodies that are generated. 

    • The IgE blood test is requested when the skin prick test is unavailable or if the suspected allergen is not included in the skin prick test panel. It is also performed in cases where the skin prick test yields negative results despite your known history of allergies or previous instances of anaphylactic reactions to certain allergens. 

    Risk Analysis for Environmental Allergy Blood Test in Mumbai 

    With the environmental allergy blood test, the only risk you might encounter is slight soreness or bruising at the needle insertion site, which will go away shortly.
