When you come in for testing, it is imperative that you tell your Arcadia allergy doctor or one of our staff members about any and all medications you may be taking before we perform our skin testing. Certain medications can interfere with the ability to perform this kind of test, so it is vital to disclose this information.
Skin testing is an effective method of determining allergies, and can offer different information than blood testing. It can even be more accurate than blood testing. However, in some cases, skin and blood testing may be required for determining certain types of allergies such as food allergies.
