In brief: Minimal

Typically there are no significant complications to allergy testing.
It is best if a patients asthma is in good control before allergy testing and they should be off antihistamines for several days to be sure that the test indicates all of their allergies. Antihistamines interfere with the ability of the test to show a positive result.
