When is the best time to test for indoor or outdoor allergies?

Modified on Fri, 09 Dec 2022 at 03:46 PM

You can measure your IgE antibodies at any time. However, the level of IgE concentration in your blood can change based on timing or exposure to the allergen. 


Depending on your situation, you may want to test during one of the following times:

  • When you're experiencing symptoms and want to see if they may be related to indoor or outdoor allergies
  • If you have seasonal symptoms and want to see if outdoor allergens cause them
  • If you have asthma, testing can be used as a precautionary measure to reduce exposure
  • If you're on allergy shots or immunotherapy to check the progress of your treatment plan
