Allergy Skin Testing


The Scratch Test, also known as the prick-puncture test, is one of the most acceptable methods of allergy testing. A small amount of allergens is placed under the skin surface to check for reaction. Testing can be done for different allergens at the same time, and results are usually obtained within 15-20 minutes.
Note: Avoidance of allergens could potentially prevent further progression of diseases including Nasal Polyposis, Chronic Sinusitis, and Asthma with recurrent exacerbation and other irreversible disease.

Our tests are fast, reliable and painless, and can be used both to diagnose and to monitor the benefit of treatment for respiratory problems such as asthma.

Tree pollen, flowering plants, grass pollen, ragweed pollen, dust mites, feathers.
