Allergy Testing

During allergy skin tests, your skin is exposed to suspected allergy-causing substances (allergens) and is then observed for signs of an allergic reaction. 

Patient Information and Advice

  • Patients are advised to refrain from the use of anti-allergy drugs (anti-histamines) for at least 96 hours prior to testing.
  • No after-care is required.
  • Redness/swelling may occur at test area, this usually resolves within 24hours.
