Allergic Rhinitis - Diagnosis
Also, some skin tests can help diagnosis of allergic rhinitis, which includes:
- Skin prick test: This test uses a small amount of purified allergen extract that is pricked into the skin of your arm and then it is observed for any signs of an allergic reaction. Positive test for this test would be a raised bump at the tested site that will confirm your allergy to the injected substance.
- Intradermal tests: In this test, the allergen extract is injected between layers of the skin and observed for allergic reaction on the tested site.
