SIERRA ALLERGY ASTHMA AND SINUS CENTER

Environmental Allergy Skin Testing is a diagnostic procedure used to identify specific allergens that may be triggering allergic reactions in individuals.

During the test, small amounts of allergen extracts are applied to the surface of the skin, typically on the forearm or back, using a small prick or scratch. The skin is then observed for signs of a reaction, such as redness, swelling, or itching, which indicate sensitivity to the allergen.

Skin testing is a safe and effective method for identifying environmental allergens, including pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, and certain foods.

Results are usually available within 15 to 20 minutes, allowing for immediate interpretation and tailored treatment planning.
