Can an allergist do testing to see if you are allergic to penicillin and sulfa drugs?

In brief: Yes

There are good, validated tests to penicillin.
There are no commercially available tests to sulfonamides, but skin testing +/- oral challenge is still feasible. You should check with your allergist first.
