Mussels are found in cooler waters all over the world. Our blue mussel allergy test is used to check for allergic reactions to the blue mussel's meat. If allergic to blue mussels, some cross-reactivity to oysters, Ostrea edulis, can usually also be expected. Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen.
No special preparation is needed for Allergy Blue Mussel. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Allergy Blue Mussel. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
