Allergy skin testing

Allergy skin testing is performed for inhalant allergens and foods. The standard regimen involves skin testing using a painless (no needles) rapid method.Using a multi test applicator, allergy extracts for an appropriate number of allergens are placed on the patient's arms or back. If the patient is allergic, reactions in the form of hives (redness and swelling) begin immediately. These hives can cause temporary itching which typically resolves in a short period of time.

Results from the skin test are available in 20 minutes. Infants, children and adults can be comfortably and reliably tested.
