SIERRA ALLERGY ASTHMA AND SINUS CENTER

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

During the test, small amounts of food 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 food allergen.

Food skin testing is a safe and reliable method for identifying food allergens, including common culprits such as peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, soy, wheat, fish, and shellfish. Results are usually available within 15 to 20 minutes, allowing for immediate interpretation and tailored treatment planning.

Our allergists specialize in food skin testing, using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to provide accurate and reliable results. By identifying specific food allergens, we can develop personalized treatment plans, including allergen avoidance strategies, dietary modifications, and education on reading food labels to prevent accidental exposures.
