SKIN TEST FOR ALLERGY

Test done on the skin to designate the allergy stuff (allergen) triggering the allergic reaction. A little amount of the suspected allergy stuff is placed on the skin. The skin is then gently scratched through the little drop with a particular sterile needle. If the skin reddens and, more importantly, swells, then allergy to that stuff is probable.
