Two types of skin testing can identify the substances causing your allergy symptoms. With the pricking method, your Victory Medical doctor will apply an extract of allergens to your skin, lightly pricking the skin to allow exposure to the allergen.
With intradermal skin allergy testing, your dedicated specialist injects a small amount of the allergen into the outer layer of your skin. Your skin reaction will then be evaluated and monitored. It typically tests for the 75 most common allergens in your geographical area. The appointment usually only takes about 30 to 60 minutes.
