Allergy Venom Testing
Venom Immunotherapy is a highly effective program administered by an allergist, and can prevent future allergic reactions to insect stings. Venom Immunotherapy involves administering gradually increasing doses of venom to decrease a patient’s sensitivity to the venom. This can reduce the risk of a future allergic reaction to that of the general population.
What to Expect?
Venom Testing begins with a prick. If this test is negative, the procedure is followed by intradermal testing to confirm that you are not allergic. This procedure is done in the office under careful observation and takes approximately 3 hours to complete, including observation time.
