Photos: Skin Prick Testing from a Patient's Perspective

From Willsfca's photostream (a Creative Commons license):


"Halfway through: After about 20 little shots of allergens. There were 42 total. I didn't think they would shoot them one at a time, but they did. This was only for the indoor allergens. There's another round later for the outdoor ones."


"Dust mites and cats: apparently i'm allergic to both types of dust mites and cats."
