SKIN TESTS

Prick or scratch skin tests are used to evaluate patients with nasal allergies, asthma, food allergy, hives or insect venom allergy. Skin tests are performed to identify what you may be allergic to (e.g., pet dander, pollens, dust mites, foods, bee venom).

A small amount of allergen is put into your skin by making a small indentation or “prick“ on the surface of your skin. If you are sensitive to the allergens, a positive reaction (red, itchy bump) will occur within 15 minutes. If skin testing is recommended, we require patients to be off of antihistamines for 5 days prior to the test.

Here is a video that shows the process of skin testing.

SPIROMETRY

This is an in office breathing test that measures air flow and volume to diagnose and evaluate patients with asthma. The NIH Asthma Guideline recommend spirometry at initial assessment, after treatment and symptoms have stabilized and at least once yearly to assess the maintenance of airway function.

PATCH TESTING FOR PATIENTS WITH RASH, ECZEMA OR CONTACT DERMATITIS.

Red, itchy, inflamed skin may result from an allergic reaction to substances in skin care products, cosmetics, soaps, clothes, hair dyes, rubber products, leather, metals, medications and other products that your skin may come in contact with. PATCH testing is the gold standard for identifying whether a substance is causing or aggravating your dermatitis.
