There’s Been a Big Change in Allergy Skin Testing.
The skin tests are often known as prick testing. While the skin prick test sounds scary this test is relatively painless and no blood is drawn. An area on the back is selected and marked with a pen that itself won’t cause an allergic response. Then small amounts of the suspected allergens or extracts of the allergens are introduced to these areas and a prick is made in the skin (no needles are used). After 20 minutes the body’s reactions to the allergens are observed to determine which ones are causing the patient’s allergic symptoms.
