What Happens During a Skin Test?
In order to help you avoid allergic reactions, we first need to know what you're allergic to. Skin testing is a safe and easy way to figure out or confirm what's causing your symptoms.
Skin tests use extracts -- a concentrated liquid form -- of common allergens such as foods , dust mites, pollen, mold, and animal dander to name a few. Once the allergen gets placed on your skin, if you allergic to it, it would trigger a rash. Your skin will get irritated and may itch, feels similar to mosquito bite.
That reaction is how we can tell you're allergic to that substance.
