Skin Prick Test
22 October @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Skin prick tests can tell us a lot about our health – including whether a substance we touch, breathe or eat is causing particular symptoms. The test works by exposing the skin to suspected allergy-causing substances; you are then observed for signs of an allergic reaction.
In this talk, Dr Lim from IMC will explain everything you need to know about the skin prick test, including who might be a candidate for one, and how to prepare for it. He will then run through the process of the test and explain how the results can impact your health.
Date: 22 October
Place: Zoom Online
