If you think you need to be tested for an allergy, the first step is to make an appointment for a consultation. It’s good to think about your symptoms and when they started, because when you call, we’ll ask you a few questions about your symptoms, and any medication you may be taking.

At your consultation, you’ll see the Consultant, Allergist or nurse who will talk to you about your clinical history. You will be asked a range of questions about your symptoms, general health, diet, and home and work environments. All of these are important to work out just what could be triggering your reactions (allergens) as well as deciding what is the most appropriate next step for you. The expert will also discuss what type of allergy test might be appropriate.

What is skin prick testing?

Skin prick allergy testing scratches the skin rather than puncturing or piercing it. No blood is drawn and it is very safe. A small amount of possible allergens are dropped onto your forearm. Your skin is then scratched so that the allergens can react with your skin. If a red mark appears, it’s measured and we can work out the best advice on avoiding and managing the identified allergy.
