Needle Free Allergy Testing – Available at McKenzie Medical Center Main Clinic
Allergy skin tests are most reliable for diagnosing allergies to airborne substances, such as pollen, pet dander and dust mites. We test for a variety of air-borne substances (inhalants) to determine which allergen you are allergic and to the degree of sensitivity you have to each one. Skin tests are generally safe for adults and children of all ages.
Our allergy testing is easy, pain-free, and more effective than ever! Instead of being referred to an expensive specialist, the latest developments in allergy science means you can get answers right here at MMC. No needles are used to test or treat our patients. And testing is done right here in the office.
For the most effective results, we will perform the test on your back. After swabbing with a disinfecting alcohol pad, the skin is scratched with a variety of allergens. Slight swelling, redness or irritation will help determine your allergies. The test takes about 10-15 minutes, and you should have your results in 20 minutes or less!
You may experience itchy skin, stuffy nose, red watery eyes or a skin rash after testing. This is normal and these symptoms should subside after testing is complete.
You must schedule an appointment to have this test done. Call 731-352-7907 for more information or to make your appointment today!
