Q: How Do I Know What's Causing My Allergy Symptoms?

A: Since your allergies can be in response to virtually any food, airborne substance, or chemical, you must first figure out the culprit before knowing how to best treat the problem. Here are some ways to determine your triggers:

  • Keep a journal of your symptoms, including where you went and what you did, ate, wore, and so on, when you had them. Look for patterns.
  • A food-elimination diet can help you pinpoint problem foods.
  • Ask your healthcare provider whether a blood test for food and chemical sensitivities might be worthwhile.
