How do you do a skin sensitivity test for two different antibiotics? Can this test be done at the same time in both hands?

A:

Thank you for your inquiry.

I assume you are asking whether or not one can skin test to two different antibiotics at the same time using separate arms. Yes, you can skin test to two antibiotics simultaneously using both right and left arms.

Thank you again for your inquiry and we hope this response is helpful to you.

Sincerely,
Phil Lieberman, M.D.
