How we diagnose your allergies?

If you suffer from allergic symptoms, you can only know for certain by undergoing a specific test. The doctor will start by asking you questions about your symptoms, history of allergy, exposure, family history etc, to get a good picture of your situation and to see what he can do to help you.

To help determine whether an allergy is involved, the doctor may perform a skin prick test or intracutaneous test. These tests involve either a gentle prick through a drop of allergen extract on the surface of your arm or the injection of a small amount of allergen extract into the skin. This may result in a small swelling and a reddening of the skin, suggesting that you have an allergy.
