What to wear
Wear a sleeveless or short sleeve shirt that easily rolls up to shoulders if possible. Comfort is key, as you will be here an average of 2 hours. No perfumes or scented body products are to be worn to the allergy clinic.

Testing a minor
If the patient is younger than 18 years of age they must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for the entire length of testing. The parent or legal guardian must also accompany the minor patient for their allergy injections.

Diet
There are no diet restrictions prior to testing. A meal eaten before you arrive will prevent you from becoming too hungry before testing is completed.

Medications
Review the next two pages of medication restrictions as soon as possible. Certain drugs can interfere with test results and must be discontinued before your appointment. the specific dates for discontinuance are on the lists that follow. Call the allergy department if you have a prescribed medication that conflicts with the recommendations. Your pharmacist can answer specific questions if you are uncertain about which category your particular medications are in.
