Prick Test

Skin prick testing is a simple, quick and inexpensive form of testing when an allergy is suspected.

The skin prick test introduces such a tiny amount of allergen into the skin, often on the inner forearm. These tests can be carried out on all age groups, including children. Results of the test are read within 20 to 30 minutes. Your doctor will explain & interpret the results to you. Please avoid taking anti-histamines and certain other medications for 48 hours before the test.
