What Is The Skin Prick Testing For?

Soluprick SQ is used to check if you have an allergy to one of the following groups of allergens:

Grass pollen Tree pollen Weed pollen Animal hair and dander House dust mites

See section number 7

Before You Are Given Your Skin Prick Test Are you regularly taking Beta-blockers to control your blood pressure? Have you any skin problems in the area to be used for testing? Are you allergic to any of the ingredients in Soluprick SQ? Are you taking, antihistamines, hydroxyzine, ketotifen, tricyclic antidepressants or using steroid ointment? If the answer to any or all of the above questions is YES, TELL YOUR DOCTOR/NURSE BEFORE HE/SHE GIVES YOU SOLUPRICK SQ How Will You Be Given The Skin Prick Test? The Skin Prick Test is usually carried out on the inner side of the forearm. Alternatively the test can be done on your back. Your skin must be dry and clean and may be disinfected with alcohol by the nurse or doctor Test preparations and the controls are applied in droplets on the skin at an appropriate distance from each other (a numbered tape may be used). The top layer of the skin is pierced by the doctor/nurse with an ALK lancet through the droplets. The reaction is read after 15 minutes. A positive reaction is a pale small raised swelling or weal with a red edge. After You Have Been Given The Skin Prick Test

Normally a Skin Prick Test does not cause any problems but occasionally some people may get side effects such as:

A continuously spreading weal may be formed at the site during the first 10-20 minutes after application of the allergen. Widespread swelling and redness may happen 6-24 hours after the application of the allergen.

If you experience any of these side effects, and they stay or become troublesome, tell your doctor or pharmacist.

If you get any other unusual or unexpected side effect, you should tell your doctor or pharmacist at once.

Anaphylactic reaction

In extremely rare cases an anaphylactic reaction (a severe reaction throughout the body that is recognised by difficulty in breathing, fainting, itching, and weals) may develop after a few seconds or minutes. For this reason an emergency kit with a ‘ready for use’ adrenalin syringe will always be available.

TELL YOUR DOCTOR/NURSE IMMEDIATELY IF YOU FEEL ANY OF THESE CHANGES. He or she will be able to give you the right treatment at once to make you feel well.
