- In the skin. An intradermal (ID) injection is given into the skin. Intradermal tests are a type of skin test. An agent is injected into the skin to test the reaction to the agent (often a protein). Intradermal tests are much used to diagnose allergy and to test cellular immunity. The most superficial application of a substance would be epicutaneous (on the skin); then would come intradermal (in the skin); next subcutaneous (just under the skin); then intramuscular (into the body of the muscle), etc.
