Book Now

An allergy test is an outpatient skin pricking test to identify various allergens' sensitivity. It shows how one’s lungs respond to specific allergens. An allergy test is a simple, safe, non-invasive and quick result-giving test that helps you manage your heart conditions and avoid triggers. 

 

In an Allergy test, your skin is pricked, and a small amount of allergen is put under the surface to see the body's response to that allergen. There is no specific age group on which this test is carried out. It can be performed for all age groups and is carried out on the inner forearm. 

 

The three most common types of Skin allergy care tests include:

  • Skin prick testing

  • Intradermal skin testing

  • Patch testing.

 

During the test, certain things in your body include more acid production in the stomach, stimulation of nerve endings, widening of blood vessels, etc. Skin prick tests may cause mild discomfort to the patient.
