Testing for Environmental and Food Allergies can be performed relatively quickly and painlessly using a method called “scratch” testing. Essentially skin testing, aka allergy testing, involves applying a small amount of an “extract” containing different allergens with our plastic multi test applicators.
IF you are interested in scheduling an appointment for skin testing, PLEASE be advised that ALL medications that include antihistamines in them must be discontinued 7 days PRIOR to the appointment date. If they are not stopped in time, the test results will not be accurate. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions on the antihistamines.
