In brief: Lots

Allergists routinely test to inhalant allergens (pollen, animals dust mites, molds), foods, stinging insects, and some drugs, such as penicillin.
Whether a person needs such tests depends on a thorough medical history. Proper testing greatly aids in the management of allergic diseases.
