About Our Horsefly Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to horse flies.
Horseflies are known for their very painful and often relentless biting. The bites may become itchy, sometimes causing a large swelling afterwards if not treated quickly. In those species that bite, it is only the females that search out prey, for blood meals to nourish their developing eggs. The male are nectar feeders and are incapable of biting, as they lack the modifications of the mouth parts found in females.
As with all other true flies, horse flies follow the following life stages: egg, larva (a.k.a. maggot, when referring to most fly larvae), pupa and adult.
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. HealthLabs.com offers an easier, virtually pain-free blood test to determine the allergen status of substances without the irritation of traditional skin prick tests.
- No painful skin pricks
- No fasting necessary
- Accurate results within 1 to 2 days
