In brief: About 30 minutes

Skin testing takes about 30 min.
In many cases no needles are used and it is just a scratch..A little annoying but not painful. We even do it on young children.

In brief: 15 minutes

The typical allergy skin test takes 15 min.
To develop once applied to the skin. So you will have meaningful answers in 15 min.! however, plan on your doctors appointment lasting *a little* longer than that!
