Does Allergy testing hurt?
Allergy testing is not painful. The lancet barely penetrates the skins surface. You should feel a small momentary discomfort only.
What do we test for?
We can perform environmental allergy testing and food allergy testing. We test from age 2 years and up.
- Environmental allergy testing; including grass, pollen, dust mite, mould and animal danders.
- Food allergy testing including full food panel, common foods, gut panels, nut and seafood.
