Are they doing the scratch test? If so, they usually mark small circles on the back and scrape the skin to insert the allergen within those circles. If your daughter has an allergic reaction, it will swell a bit. Nothing to be alarmed about
, it sort of looks like misquito bites. A 4 year old is going to be tough because even though these tests normally don't hurt much, kids like to wiggle! I don't have much advice on how to entertain your girl while she is going thru this. My son had allergy testing when he was 18 months old but they did the needle under the skin test (I can't remember the name of this test). All I can say is that he did not like this at all!
Good luck and I hope she doesn't have tooooo many allergies. That makes it rough on a kid.
