More than 50 million people in the United States suffer from allergies. Determining what you are allergic to is a crucial first step in figuring out the most effective treatment.
The standard allergy test is performed by pricking suspected allergens on the surface of the skin. The skin on the back is pricked with 112 allergens, and after only 20 minutes, reactions are observed. If the back does not give clear results, the doctor may recommend that a second type of skin test be performed. This test involves direct injection of the suspected allergens into the skin of the forearm.
Allergy testing is fast, painless, and the best way of determining what it is that is causing you to suffer from congestion, itchiness, and other discomforts as a result of allergic reactions. Find relief. Ask your doctor about allergy testing today!
