Boerne’s Trusted Allergy Skin Testing
Skin testing for allergies is used to identify numerous potential allergens, including airborne, food related, and contact based. The three types of skin tests are scratch, intradermal, and patch tests. A scratch test involves an allergen placed in liquid, which is then placed on your skin with a specialized tool that lightly punctures your skin, exposing it to the allergen. If there are localized redness, swelling, elevation, or itchiness over the test site, you’re allergic to that specific allergen. When you need a reliable allergy skin test, whether a starch, intradermal, or patch, schedule an appointment with our allergists today!
Accurate Allergy Blood Testing Results in Boerne
If there’s a chance you might have a severe allergic reaction to a skin test, our allergist may call for a blood test instead. Blood is drawn and tested in a laboratory for antibodies that fight specific allergens. Allergy blood tests are very successful in detecting IgE antibodies to major allergens.
