“Melbourne Allergy and Asthma office was quick and easy to get an appointment even during the pandemic. Dr. Pavana Beerelli met with us by telehealth and was able to provide excellent insight into my child’s eczema and allergies. It was such a relief to finally have a treatment plan for my child. Dr. Beerelli was helpful and thorough in her approach. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”

Different Types of Allergy Testing
Methods for Skin Testing

Blood tests measure the immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibody levels in the blood, which will be elevated after an allergic reaction. Broadly speaking, there are 2 types of blood tests including total IgE and specific IgE. Total IgE blood testing indicates if an allergic reaction occurred but will not be able to distinguish the specific allergen. A specific IgE test, on the other hand, measures IgE antibody levels in response to individual allergens.
