We look forward to helping you with your allergies and to guide you through the various treatment options. An allergy skin test is easy to perform and is pain free. This will give us immediate results that can help us pinpoint your allergies. This can be done for environmental and food allergies.
The goal of an allergy skin test is to identify the presence, type, and severity of allergies, which are an abnormal response your body has to certain substances in the environment.
Allergy skin testing is typically performed on the forearm or back, and takes approximately 90 minutes. The test is done on both adults and children of most ages.
Listed below please find 2 links: allergy skin testing instructions and medication that interfere with testing. Please review these prior to your testing appointment, as many medications can interfere with allergy testing. It is important that you follow the instructions for allergy testing so that accurate results can be determined. Failure to do so may result in a return visit.
If you have a history of asthma, you should bring your albuterol inhaler with you to your testing appointment.
If after reading through the allergy skin testing instructions and medication guide, you have additional questions please contact the Allergy department at 978-997-1550 and we will be happy to assist you further.
At the time of your office visit, a surgical procedure may be recommended. We will do our best to accommodate your request at the facility of your preference. The physicians have surgical privileges at the following facilities:
