Types of skin Test

Name Description

Skin Tests

In this test, a small amount of allergen is placed on your skin, and this area is pricked or scratched. If you are allergic, you’ll experience a little swelling at the site of the prick test.

Intradermal Tests

They are more sensitive than prick tests. In this test, your allergist will use a syringe to inject some allergen under your skin.

Challenge Tests

These test are performed in case of food or drug allergy. In this test, your allergist will use a syringe to inject some allergen under your skin.

Blood Tests

For this test, blood is drawn and then tested for allergies. This test costs more than some other tests. It will also take longer to receive your results.

Skin testing combined with a physical examination and medical history of your symptoms is the most reliable, cost-effective and rapid approach to determining what you are and are not allergic to.
