Allergy Skin Testing: An Overview

 
A skin test pinpoints your specific allergies. Skin testing is the oldest and most reliable form of allergy testing. Used for over 100 years, skin testing continues to be the “gold standard” for diagnosing allergic disease. This testing is not painful. A tiny comb gently scratches or abrades the skin surface. After the test is performed, it takes only about 15 minutes to develop. A positive test will appear as a raised, red itchy bump on the skin, like a mosquito bite. The skin test reveals allergic disease in miniature. For example, if you think you are allergic to cats, the test will show it. The test helps people see (and feel) a positive allergy to cat dander. This educational experience is much more dramatic for you the patient than a printed blood test report revealing a positive cat allergy test.
