Prick Skin Test

Prick Skin Test

Allergies are the body’s response to a foreign substance called an allergen. Skin prick testing or SPT can be used to evaluate an allergic response to a specific allergen. When combined with an allergy focused history, skin pick test can help to confirm the presence of an allergy to either a food or inhaled substance (allergen).
