Also, they usually do them on your back, but I just had one done a few months ago and they did it on my upper arm. It doesn't hurt to get the test. If you end up being allergic to one of the allergens they test, it can make you itchy for a little while in that spot...nothing too bad. They do tell you not to itch it at all though while you're waiting for about
10 minutes to see what (if any) reactions you have.
