AbstractThe prevalence of allergic diseases in childhood has increased considerably in developed nations in the last 2-3 decades, and accordingly the need of allergy testing has increased steadily. Hong Kong is also facing similar challenge. Allergy testing is an important prerequisite for both early identification of infants at increased risk of allergic disease and for specific allergy treatments. In this review, we shall discuss the allergy tests currently practised in Hong Kong. We have made practical recommendations to local practitioner for testing allergy related dermatological problems. It is desirable to strengthen the co-operation between the specialist sector/hospitals and general practitioners in order to let the right children get the right tests at the right time.
