When you have a allergy scratch test done where on the back

This answer was rated:

When you have a allergy scratch test done where on the back can they do it? upper or lower? i have a very sensitive upper back and was wondering if it could be done on the lower back.
i had it done in 2004 and at that time it was done more on upper back.

I am Dr. Thomas, double board certified doctor, and I will help you with this and any follow up questions.

In fact, this can be done on the arm.
In most cases there is no need to do it on the back at all.

The location on the back should not make a difference
