What is an allergy test like to test for pollen allergies?

Easy. Skin testing for pollen allergy entails: cleaning the skin with alcohol, number the skin to keep track of the different allergens tested, a "prick" with skin test device that has a drop of the allergen on the tip and then waiting 15-20 minutes to see if a reaction occurs. The skin test feels like a mosquito bite it is really quite painless.
