NHCC – Allergy Testing

At the National HealthCare Center

We help provide a thorough and effective diagnosis of your allergic issues, even the rare ones that other doctors may have missed. Our Skin Scratch Allergy Test can identify allergies to pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and several other substances.

In severe cases, allergies can result in breathing troubles, loss of consciousness, and even death. So, you must know what your body is sensitive to, from what you eat to what you touch, inhale, and more.

How a Skin Scratch Allergy Test is done?

Knowing what your body sensitively reacts to is the first step in preventing allergies. The Skin Scratch Allergy Test is a quick and effective test for detecting allergic issues.

Painless Process

The test, usually painless, is carried out on either your forearm for children or upper back for adults by making a slight scratch on the skin and then testing for immediate sensitive reactions to allergen extracts.

100% Safe

The skin scratch test is equally safe for both children and adults, so there’s no cause for worry. However, there could be mild to moderate discomfort, as the case may be.

Test Duration

The estimated test duration is 25mins, and before we begin, we’ll ask to know any current medication you’re on as certain drugs can affect the accuracy of your results.

What the Results Tell You

Once the test is completed and results reveal you have allergies, we’ll carefully explain what could be happening to your body, symptoms, and probable causes.

Ideally, the best way to prevent an allergic reaction is to avoid what triggers it in the first place. However, total avoidance may not always be possible.

In that case, we’ll recommend treatment options to manage your allergies better.
