Allergy Testing Frequently Asked Questions

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    How do allergy tests work?

    Allergy testing may involve a skin test or a blood test. A skin test involves placing a potential allergen on the skin with a tool that lightly scratches the skin’s surface. If your skin develops redness, swelling, or itchiness, you are allergic.

    Blood tests are used in some cases, like if a severe allergic reaction to a skin test is suspected. Your blood will be sent to a lab for examination for the presence of antibodies related to specific allergens.

    How long does it take to get allergy test results?

    Allergy skin tests are very fast. You will be monitored for any reactions, which typically occur within 20 minutes. In some cases, you may experience redness or swelling a few hours after testing. Blood tests take longer because the blood sample must be sent to a laboratory for examination. As a result, it may take several days for the results to come back.

    How long does allergy testing take?

    The amount of time required for an allergy test depends on the type of test being performed. With a skin test, you will remain at the doctor’s office while you are monitored for reactions. This typically takes about 20-40 minutes. However, scratch tests can sometimes be inconclusive, and your doctor may want to perform additional testing. If you are only doing a blood test, it takes just a few minutes to draw a blood sample.

    How much does an allergy test cost?

    The cost of allergy testing can vary greatly depending on the type of test and the number of allergens tested. For example, the cost for a skin test may range from $60 to $300, plus there may be an additional fee for a consultation with an allergist. Blood tests can range from $200 to $1,000.

    Does insurance cover allergy testing?

    If you have health insurance, your insurance plan may cover allergy testing. Check with your insurance company to find out exactly what is covered. You may need to pay a copay. With some insurance plans, the copay for a specialist may be higher than the copay for a primary care physician. If you have a blood test, there will also be a separate bill from the laboratory, which may or may not be covered by insurance.

    How do I read allergy test results?

    After an allergy test, your doctor will watch for skin reactions known as wheals and flares. A wheal is a raised, red, and itchy area of the skin. Wheals can vary in shape and size and may have a white center. A flare is the red area surrounding the wheal. Stronger allergic reactions will cause a larger wheal and flare.

    How accurate are allergy tests?

    Allergy testing is not an exact science. They may sometimes result in a false positive, or an indication of an allergy when there isn’t one. They may also fail to trigger a reaction to something you’re actually allergic to. You can react differently to the same allergy test on different occasions. Some medications can also interfere with allergy test results

    Where should I get an allergy test?

    Allergy tests are typically conducted by doctors specializing in allergies, known as allergists. If you have a primary care physician, you can ask them to refer you to an allergist. In addition, some labs, clinics, or urgent care facilities may also offer allergy testing. You can also find a provider by searching our directory on Solv.

    Can I do at-home allergy testing?

    Some home allergy tests are available, but they may not be completely accurate. Although an allergy test may seem like a simple process, it’s recommended that you visit a trained allergy specialist. There are many variables involved in the testing procedure that could affect your results. Some people may also develop severe reactions that require medical attention.
