Most allergies can be treated with over the counter medications with reasonable results. However, sometimes allergy testing is desired to better understand what is causing a persons allergies. Once specific patients' allergies are known the appropriate meassures can be taken to either avoid the specific allergens and/or treat for allergy.
We can perform skin allergy testing at our office. The procedure usually takes 20 minutes and is painless. Children as young as 2 years of age tolerate the procedure well.
Special allergens are applied to skin gently
Results are interpreted after 20 minutes
