See below: Skin prick test is simple, safe and gives results in minutes. It enables one to find out whether you have antibodies that react to a certain allergen (weeds/pollen). Blood tests are also used to measure levels of pollen or weed specific antibodies your body produces. Problem: positive test do not necessarily mean you have pollen/weed allergies.
