Allergy Testing

We perform allergy skin testing in our office.  This is usually done with a multi-test skin prick test device.  The forearms are usually used for this testing, but at times the back can also be used.  If you have tattoos, or alot of hair on these areas, then you should tell us beforehand.  Sometimes intradermal testing is also used.  If necessary a blood sample can be taken to test for allergies, when skin testing is not appropriate.
