Medication to Omit
Many medications may interfere with allergy skin testing. The list provided contains medications that may need to be omitted for a few days prior to your appointment in order to obtain accurate skin test results. NEVER OMIT PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS WITHOUT FIRST CHECKING WITH YOUR DOCTOR.
If your prescribing MD does not feel that you should omit certain medications, you should still keep your appointment. We will do a test prior to allergy testing to determine whether the medication will prevent accurate test results.
Please omit all oils, lotions, and creams from the arms and back on the day of your appointment. It is best to refrain from sun tanning and tanning beds at least 1 week prior to your appointment.
Most patients are skin tested on the day of their appointment if appropriate. If you do test, plan on being here most of the morning or afternoon depending on your appointment time.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you and providing the best care possible for your condition.
