In brief: History & testing

Testing may be performed with a history of typical allergy symptoms after eating something containing barley.
Skin and blood (rast) testing are accurate & easy to perform. Tests for other foods eaten at the same time should be negative. When the diagnosis is uncertain an oral challenge to barley may be considered. This should only be performed by experts experienced with oral challenges.
