Q3. What tests do you advise to diagnose an allergy?
There are several methods to diagnose an allergy including skin prick tests, blood tests, and patch tests. A blood test involves taking a patient’s blood sample, which is then thoroughly examined under a microscope. The aim of performing a blood test is to diagnose any changes which may indicate a skin condition, e.g. increased levels of antibodies.
Skin prick test and Patch test involve the application of small samples of potential allergens (substances that cause an allergic reaction) onto the patient’s skin. These allergens are left on the skin for 24 to 48 hours. After the removal of allergens, the skin is checked for various signs of an allergic reaction and a treatment plan is suggested accordingly.
