IS A PRICK TEST CONSIDERED AN EXPOSURE?
There is a study going on at National Jewish Hospital in Denver, which is completely observational, however it requires a skin prick test (peanut, egg & dairy) every 6 months. I know that severe allergies have the best chance to be owtgrown if COMPLETELY avoided. So I'm wondering if a Skin prick test would be counted as "exposure". Of course the drs say no, but I tend to seek multiple perspectives. What do you think? Does anyone know the research? Thanks!
