How Does Allergy Testing Work?

Testing Overview

Before allergy testing, your allergist will conduct a thorough medical history and exam to determine the best way to evaluate your condition. Skin testing is a comprehensive and efficient method to assess for allergies. Results are available within 15 minutes of testing. If a patient cannot have skin testing, blood testing can be performed instead. We commonly test for pollen, dust mites, animal dander, mold, food, and more.

Additionally, we offer oral drug and food challenges. An allergy "challenge" involves administering an increasing dose of a suspected food or drug. A trained allergist must closely monitor the patient for signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction. Since asthma and allergies often present together, a breathing test might accompany the allergy testing procedure.
