The skin prick test is a common method of determining whether a person is sensitised to various allergens. It can also determine a person's degree of sensitivity to various allergens. The skin prick test is economical, and the results are immediate.

A small needle is used to gently prick the skin with a drop of fluid containing a known allergen. It is usually done on the forearm. The test is usually not painful.

A positive reaction to the skin prick test occurs when the skin around the needle prick becomes itchy and red, with the development of a white swelling called a wheal. The wheal reaches its maximum size in about 15 to 20 minutes, and the reaction fades within a few hours. The larger the wheal, the more likely it is that you are allergic.

Service is offered by Raffles Internal Medicine Centre (Singapore). The price is in Singapore dollars and inclusive of GST. Please refer to the ‘Description’ section below for more information. Terms and conditions apply.
