Office Skin Testing

Dr. Livas’ in-office skin tests can accurately diagnose allergic asthma, insect sting allergies, airborne allergies (pollen, mold allergy, dust mites, animal dander), latex allergy, dermatitis (eczema) and food allergies. Skin testing involves exposing the skin to allergens and then watching for signs of an allergic reaction. If the skin at the test site becomes red, itchy or swollen, we consider the test positive for that particular allergen. Dr. Livas can test for several allergens simultaneously to determine which ones are causing symptoms.

Same-Day Test Results

Dr. Livas provides the results of scratch tests and intradermal tests during the same office visit and the results of patch tests within 48 hours. Your test results play a key role in the development of your individual treatment plan, which may involve allergy medication or immunotherapy.
