, I have 1.5 months after giving birth to sc. It’s been 2 weeks since I developed allergies, but I don’t know the cause. Is there a way / test to find out?
Hello Mama Metta,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Allergies are the body's response to substances that appear in excess. Substances that can trigger allergies are called allergens. This allergen can trigger a response in all parts of the body, especially on the skin, airway and gastrointestinal tract. The allergy you mean may be an allergy that occurs on the skin after the surgery you were doing. To find out whether there is a substance that causes allergies, it is necessary to first check whether the skin condition that occurs is allergies or other disorders such as the presence or absence of infection or others.
To find out allergic substances, generally allergy tests can be done. Allergy tests are performed by doctors by giving an extract of each substance that is injected finely under the skin. After administering the substance, wait for a while and see the response that appears on the skin, if the results show a bump or redness of a certain diameter, it can be said that someone is allergic to the substance.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
