FAQ


SKIN PRICK TESTING

A skin prick test is usually the first test to be done when looking for an allergen. It’s quick, painless and safe, and you get the results quickly. Your skin is pricked with a tiny amount of the suspected allergen to see if there’s a reaction. If there is, the skin around the prick will very quickly become itchy and a red wheal (swollen mark) will appear.

We are able to offer a comprehensive range of skin prick tests for inhalant allergens (dust mites, pollens, animal danders), to foods including eggs, cows milk, peanuts, tree nuts, seeds, fruits, fin fish, crustacean and molluscs.

Food intolerances are also investigated and managed in association with an experienced Allergy dietitian.

PATCH TESTING

The patch test is used to see if a skin reaction is caused by contact with a specific chemical or substance. A small amount of the suspect substance or chemical, such as nickel, is added to special metal discs, which are taped to your skin and monitored for a reaction.

We offer a comprehensive range of test allergens from a full cosmetic series, extended fragrance series, nail cosmetic series, sunscreen series, medicament series including ear and eye and wound medicaments, anogenital series, steroid series and orthopaedic implant series.
