Allergies testing, blood work vs skin test
It was stated time after time that allergies are best diagnosed by blood work not by performing a skin test. Blood work poses lesser chances of mistakes or exposure to unwanted foreign elements, on the other hand skin test employs foreign elements and medications to perform the testing step. The patient could be allergic to these very elements that being used for the test which will produce a false positive allergic response. I support blood work for such allergy testing.
