Skin allergy tests

Skin tests are the technique most commonly used to begin diagnosing an allergy. Following a meticulous clinical history, it is decided which skin tests may be useful, depending on the case.

Skin allergy tests serve to find out if a patient is "sensitised" to a particular substance, if their body recognises the substance and reacts when it comes into contact with it. These tests DO NOT DIAGNOSE an allergy. They are only positive if accompanied by one of the symptoms compatible with an allergy, helping a diagnosis to be reached.
