What is an allergy skin test?

In the prick, scratch and scrape tests, a couple drops of the purified allergen are either pricked, scratched or scraped on the skin surface; more often than not the lower arm. This test distinguishes allergies to pet dander, dust, pollen, food or dust parasites, mites. Skin tests are directed in light of the fact that they are speedy, dependable, and more reasonable than blood tests.
