Allergy Testing and Allergy Treatment

Skin testing

This is an easy option performed in our office.  This procedure involves using a small plastic device and making a number of skin pricks on the skin.  We typically use the skin on your back.  A device called the “Multi-Test” to test is used for most common inhaled allergens (pollens, molds, dust, animal dander, etc.).  We can also test for common food allergies with the skin testing.  This type of testing in best to determine IgE medicated allergies.  

The skin pricks are applied in panels of 8 allergens.  We test for 70 allergens common in the Southeast  as well as an option for additional foods.  We allow the skin to “react” over the next 15 minutes and then interpret the degree of reaction by the amount of swelling (wheal formation) and erythema (redness or flare reaction).  


Check with your insurance carrier for testing coverage and immunotheraphy treatment.  For our self pay clients the cost is $650 for the testing.
