New allergy test - Skin Prick Testing
Our Dr Ina Achmetova is now certified to provide skin prick testing for both adults and children.
Skin prick testing is used to diagnose allergies. The doctor will prick gently through a drop of each allergen extract placed on the surface on the arm. The result is seen after 10-15 min. If you are allergic to the allergen you will have a small, itchy swelling and a reddening of the skin. The reaction will disapper after 2 or 3 hours.
This test is painless and rapid. After the result the doctor may prescribe the treatment most suitable for you.
The price for skin prick testing is £140.
