Allergy Testing


There are three common methods of allergy skin testing.
The skin prick test involves :
Placing a small amount of substances that may be causing your symptoms on the skin, most often on the forearm, upper arm, or back. The skin is then pricked so the allergen goes under the skin's surface. The health care provider closely watches the skin for swelling and redness or other signs of a reaction. Results are usually seen within 15 to 20 minutes. Several allergens can be tested at the same time.
The intradermal skin test involves :
Injecting a small amount of allergen into the skin. The health care provider then watches for a reaction at the site. This test is more likely to be used to find out if you are allergic to bee venom or penicillin. Or it may be used if the skin prick test was negative and the provider still thinks that you are allergic to the allergen. Patch testing is a method to diagnose the cause of skin reactions that occur after the substance touches the skin:
Possible allergens are taped to the skin for 48 hours. The health care provider will look at the area in 72 to 96 hours.
