The auditory brainstem response (ABR) test measures your infant or young child’s hearing sensitivity. It is considered to be the premier hearing screening test for newborns and infants under six months of age.
Skin Allergy Tests: Everything You Need to Know
Skin tests involve placing a small amount of a potential allergen on or beneath the skin to see if a reaction develops. Here’s what to expect when you arrive at SFENTA™ for your skin allergy test:
The site of the test (either your back or arm) will be cleansed thoroughly.
We will place small drops of potential allergens on your skin.
We will then prick your skin with a needle, allowing each allergen to penetrate beneath the surface. Or, we may inject the allergen directly into your skin.
After about 15 minutes, we will evaluate your skin for red and itchy areas. If a reaction develops on your skin, it means that you are possibly allergic to that substance.
