Cottonwood is a deciduous tree native to eastern North America. Pollen from the Cottonwood tree results in asthma, hayfever and allergic conjunctivitis. The pollen of the poplar tree is produced in enormous quantities for about two weeks every year, and can be windblown for miles from its origin. Individuals who are allergic to cottonwood trees may also be allergic to willow trees. Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen.
No special preparation is needed for Allergy Cottonwood Fluorescence Assay. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Allergy Cottonwood Fluorescence Assay. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
