    Is there any preparation needed before having Allergy Testing?

    A consultation with a dermatologist is required prior to any allergy testing. The Dermatologist will review your medical history and identify potential triggers to your allergies. They may ask you to keep a food diary or lifestyle diary to help identify allergens.

    What aftercare is required for Allergy Testing?

    There is no aftercare required.
