Dottore London offers Skin Prick testing to adults and children.

Skin prick testing is one of the most common allergy tests. It involves putting a drop of liquid onto your forearm that contains a substance you may be allergic to. The skin under the drop is then gently pricked. If you’re allergic to the substance, an itchy, red bump will appear within 15 minutes.

The skin prick test is one of the main diagnostic allergy tests for allergic problems of the nose, eyes, grass, mould, dust and animal allergies (hay fever), allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis, food allergies and drug allergies.

The skin prick test is very safe and can be done in adults, children and even very small babies. It is not painful as a small metal pricker just scratches the upper layer of the skin with a drop of allergen.
