Allergist-Skin Testing

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had the skin testing for food allergies...40-50 pricks on the back to see if your allergic? Is this a good test to have or a waste of time?

I just saw an allergist last week, what he told me was skin testing is not very accurate for food allergys . Skin testing is more for environmental ( dust,mold ect..) allergys. My allergist did blood work to test me for food allergys. I am hoping that he knows what he is talking about. :unsure: The test results are not back yet <_<

Hopeful some of the others can give us some input
