Allergy Evaluation & Allergy Shots
Board-certified allergists are specialists who are highly trained to understand the ins and outs of allergy testing and to oversee what happens during and after sample analysis. Here at the Pediatric and Allergy Clinic of Austin, we offer:
- Prick/puncture. A diluted allergen is applied with a prick or a punture on the surface of the skin.
- Intradermal. Using a 26 to 30-gauge (very thin) needle, a diluted allergen is injected immediately below the skin surface. ( for more information about allergy testing check out our blogs, below link and you tube video)
