Allergy tests

You may need to come to clinic for some allergy tests.

If you are having these tests you need to stop taking your antihistamine medication for three days before the test.

The test involves writing on your arm and doing some drops and pops on your arm with special solution. The test is very quick and once it has been done you can have a play in the play area for 10 to 15 minutes until the results are recorded by doing some more writing on your arm.

Depending who has asked for the test you will either then see a doctor or go home and see a doctor at a later date.
