Skin Allergy Testing
Identify the allergens of your allergic reaction
Allergy testing identifies allergens, like mold, pet dander, bee stings and peanuts, that can cause allergies. A skin prick test, introduces allergens into your skin to check for a wheal (raised mark), rash or other reactions. Blood tests can check for IgE antibodies. The results can help you take steps to manage allergies.
People can be allergic to things in the environment like mold, pollen and pet dander. Some people have allergic reactions to bee stings or latex. People with food allergies may not be able to tolerate peanuts, milk or soy.
