If I think I may have seasonal allergies could a doctor determine or test for that?

In brief: Absolutely

After taking a history if your symptoms, and examining you, the allergist would probably do a simple scratch test ( no needles or blood).
In about 20 minutes they can usually tell you what substances are causing your symptoms. Then a treatment plan can be made with you. We are usually very successful in helping people with allergies.

In brief: Allergy test

Yes, skin tests or blood tests could help determine that.
Consider seeing an allergist certified by the american board of allergy and immunology or abai. You can find one on the website www.Aaaai.Org.
