As the name suggests, an allergy test is done to find out what are the reactions a person might undergo due to exposure to certain substances or allergens. Skin Allergy and Allergic diseases are common forms of this condition that one in every three individual encounters and what might be suitable for one person may not be appropriate for the other. To determine this, Allergy Test Treatments are done to find a fool proof way of determining the cause. Also once the allergic agents are established, it is easier for the person to avoid them in the future and also helps the general physician in advance to treat the symptoms. Skin tests are preferred over blood tests due to their accuracy, and they are relatively cheap. There are three types of skin tests: Skin prick test - A small drop of solution containing the possible allergen is placed on skin's surface. The reactions of the skin are noted, and possible treatments are carried out. Intradermal test - In this type, the solution is directly injected into the skin for a more visible result. The results are analyzed over a period, and the medications /restrictions are suggested. Skin patch test - In this trial, the allergen solution is placed on a sticky pad, and is stuck to the skin for a period of time. This is a common type of test to determine if a person has a condition of contact dermatitis. The results are analyzed and future medications and treatments are advised as per the need of the patient by the general physician.
