Intradermal Skin Test

The intradermal skin test is carried out if the clinician suspects an allergy is still a possibility despite a negative skin prick test. For example, this is often used to assess a venom allergy.

A small amount of the potential allergen is injected into the skin using a needle and syringe. After 15 minutes, a swollen red bump may appear, indicating an allergy.
