- A radioallergosorbent test (RAST) is a common procedure. It is a blood test and it identifies specific IgE antibodies.
What is IgE?
If you have an allergy your body (immune system) will overreact when there is an allergen and produce an antibody called Immunoglobulin E (IgE). The antibodies will travel to cells that release chemicals causing an allergic reaction.
It is a blood protein that is made as it reacts to a specific antigen. Antibodies join chemically with substances which the body recognizes as alien, such as bacteria, viruses, and foreign substances in the blood.
what is an antibody?
-A skin prick test which is also called a scratch test, checks for immediate allergic reactions for many different substances at once. This test is usually done to see if the patient has allergies to pollen, mold, dust mites and different types of foods. In adults, the test is usually done on the forearm.
-A patch test is used to see whether a specific substance causes allergic inflammation of a patient's skin.
-Desensitisation or immunotherapy is the closest thing to a cure for an allergy. Immunotherapy is a treatment for certain severe allergies, and is the gradually increasing doses of allergen over a period of time. Its given to patients by injection or drops/tablets under the tongue.
- And the prescription of antihistamines to treat skin rashes.
