What We Do
  • Allergy skin testing involves first marking your skin with a pen.
  • Droplets of the allergen are placed on your forearm, followed by a small prick test with a lancet.
  • This is slightly uncomfortable but not painful. There are about 20 allergens that will be tested routinely although this may be shorter depending on your history.
  • Once the prick test is performed, you will need to wait 20 minutes before reading.
  • The significance of the results will be discussed after the test is performed.
