What is this test?

During allergy skin tests, your skin is exposed to suspected allergy-causing substances (allergens) and is then observed for signs of an allergic reaction. Along with your medical history, allergy tests may be able to confirm whether or not a particular substance you touch, breathe or eat is causing symptoms. Allergy skin tests are widely used to help diagnose allergic conditions, including: Hay fever (allergic rhinitis), Allergic asthma, Dermatitis (eczema), Food allergies, Penicillin allergy, Bee venom allergy, Latex allergy. Skin tests are generally safe for adults and children of all ages, including infants. In certain circumstances, though, skin tests aren't recommended. Your doctor may advise against skin testing if you: Have ever had a severe allergic reaction. You may be so sensitive to certain substances that even the tiny amounts used in skin tests could trigger a life-threatening reaction (anaphylaxis). Take medications that could interfere with test results. These include antihistamines, many antidepressants and some heartburn medications. Your doctor may determine that it's better for you to continue taking these medications than to temporarily discontinue them in preparation for a skin test. Have certain skin conditions. If severe eczema or psoriasis affects large areas of skin on your arms and back
