Depends: Depends on what you think is causing the allergy. You can do allergy blood tests - aero( dust, pollen etc) or food allergies( have to be specific with this one ). Regarding the coverage, it's best to contact Discovery directly. I would suggest doing a virtual online consultation through the Discovery DrConnect app  if you wish to discuss further.
