Pityrosporum orbiculare is an obsolete synonym of Malassezia furfur. Malassezia (formerly known as Pityrosporum) is a genus of related fungi, classified as yeasts, naturally found on the skin surfaces of many animals including humans. It can cause hypopigmentation on the trunk and other locations in humans if it becomes an opportunistic infection. 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 Pityrosporum Orbiculare. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Allergy Pityrosporum Orbiculare. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
