IgE Allergy Scratch Testing – The Gold Standard in Specific Allergy Diagnosis
HomeIgE Allergy Scratch Testing – The Gold Standard in Specific Allergy Diagnosis
IgE Allergy Skin Prick Testing is the most common method of allergy test and is relatively painless. A very small amount of certain allergens is put into the patients skin by making a small indentation or “prick” on the surface of the skin. If the allergy is positive, a little swelling that looks like a mosquito bite will occur where the allergen was introduced. Results are easy to read and interpret and make specific allergy diagnosis a simple procedure. Western Allergy Services offers a complete, in office IgE scratch testing kit for medical professionals. Patients don’t have to wait long to find out what is triggering their allergies. Reactions occur within about 20 minutes.
Skin tests are performed in a physicians office to assure the test results are read properly and to minimize the risk of rare side effects. To learn more about our allergy testing kit, please contact us.
