Two kinds: Of allergy testing - blood test for antibody levels and skin prick test (a small amount of the substance placed on a sharp tip that is pressed against the skin). The skin test is more likely to correlate with real allergy, however remember w both methods it can only suggest a possible allergy. Would leave interpretation up to ur allergist.
