Allergy Testing | 3 signs you might be allergic to Ice Cream

National Ice Cream Day is having its time in the Sun! The weather has also come out to play, so let us tell you how to enjoy your time in the USA this Summer! However, before you consume the delicious Ice Creams on offer, did you know about some of these facts about Ice Cream and Dairy allergy testing which could change your life?

Living with an allergy is annoying in any circumstances, but particularly if you have an allergy to Ice Cream. Allergy testing could help you in this regard, as the team at Allergy Test are able to help you identify exactly which items your body may be sensitive to. Intolerances and sensitivities are different from allergies, and it is important to know whether you need can tolerate any dairy or lactose, or you have a life-threatening allergy.

You can develop an intolerance through overindulging in Ice Cream or being overexposed to it. As we want you to enjoy National Ice Cream Day as much as we do, we have put together a 5-point plan to help you identify your potential allergies and intolerances.

1) Bloat, Fatigue, Tiredness, and Lethargy?

If you are experiencing the many symptoms that come with a food intolerance or allergy, then you should try allergy testing. This is particularly relevant on National Ice Cream Day if you feel like you are lactose intolerant, as it could change the way you feel about Ice Cream. If an advanced test with Allergy Test highlights an intolerance to many of the items and ingredients within Ice Cream, then this will explain why you feel unwell afterward. However, do not panic, it is not the end of the world, as there is a wide range of dairy-free alternatives for you to consume. PETA have outlined a few which will help you to enjoy National Ice Cream Day. (Yay!)

2) Skin Irritation

Every time you take a ‘tiny bite’ of Ice Cream, you may find yourself coming up in lumps and bumps. Did you have a cheeky taste just before you were about to head out to enjoy the sunshine? Or was it the perfect dessert after a big Thanksgiving Dinner? It may be that your delicious treat has actually had more of an impact on you than you think. Coming up in lumps and bumps is something that none of us like happening to us, so it is worth considering allergy testing to find out whether it is dairy that you have an intolerance to. It could mean you can have the National Ice Cream Day you’ve always dreamed of. How good does that sound?
