Plaice is a saltwater fish found in the waters of the Atlantic. Specific fishes like codfish and hake, along with plaice, contain allergenic components. Allergy to the plaice fish is common in dermatitis patients and children with other food allergies. This allergy arises from the protein parvalbumin which is found in the muscle of the fish. The Allergy Plaice Fish test is conducted to calculate the number of lgE antibodies in your blood. It diagnoses the allergy and is also used in the process of treatment and post-treatment. It is also known as Allergy Plaice Fish Radio Immunosorbent. A prick test is often used by allergists when a patient has clear allergy symptoms but is not certain which food is causing those symptoms (or whether the symptoms are caused by a food at all). They are often used when patients have hives, eczema, or hay fever symptoms. Prick tests have a number of advantages. They're among the quickest allergy tests available you can perform them and get results in about 20 to 30 minutes. They also are reasonably inexpensive. They allow allergists to test a number of potential allergens at one time, as well. Finally, they are usually not painful, even though they involve a series of pricks on your skin. Prick tests are considered less sensitive than some other allergy tests, and a negative prick test may be followed up with other, more sensitive tests if a practitioner strongly suspects an allergy. Prick tests are generally not used when a reaction is considered life-threatening.
