Phoenix Drug Allergy Testing
For the most part, testing for allergies to medications cannot be performed with simple skin testing. Testing may involve blood work and in some cases a challenge test may help clarify whether or not an allergy exists.
We do offer evaluation and allergy testing (when necessary/possible) for certain medications including antibiotics, aspirin, and anesthetics. The doctor who sees you will determine whether testing is necessary and what type of testing can be performed to clarify whether or not you are allergic. Usually you will need to make an initial appointment to discuss the allergy and a separate appointment for testing, although this can depend on the circumstances of your reaction.
