About US
Allergy testing involves having a skin or blood test to find out what substance, or allergen, may trigger an
allergic response in a person. Skin tests are usually done because they are rapid, reliable, and generally less
expensive than blood tests, but either type of test may be used.
A small amount of a suspected allergen is placed on or below the skin to see if a reaction develops. Skin test
results are obtained quickly, with positive reaction usually appearing in 15 to 30 minutes. There are two types
of skin tests:
Skin prick test. This test is done by placing a drop of a solution containing a possible allergen on the skin, and a
series of scratches or needle pricks allows the solution to enter the skin. If the skin develops a red, raised itchy
area (called a wheal), it usually means that the person is allergic to that allergen. This is called a positive
Intradermal test. During this test, a small amount of the allergen solution is injected into the skin. An intradermal
allergy test may be done when a substance does not cause a reaction in the skin prick test but is still suspected
as an allergen for that person. The intradermal test is more sensitive than the skin prick test but is more often
positive in people who do not have symptoms to that allergen (false-positive test results).
