Skin or blood test: There is allergy testing that can be done. Blood Immunocap testing or skin testing at an allergist can be done.

Testing: Skin or blood testing can determine this but we don't routinely screen for peanut allergy unless he is at higher risk such as having sibling with peanut allergy.
