My son is just over 15 months old and he battles with allergies every month. He gets sick like every third or fifth week. Can one do allergie test?

In brief: They are available

Both blood and skin tests for a variety of allergies are available.
The ones for foods are more likely to be something you can control. If airborne allergies like dust are involved it is hard to control, but may help you. Allergy shots as given in some places in the world are not considered worthwhile in infancy. Many insurers in the US do not even cover testing until 4 and above.

You can have allergy testing done at that age.
You will want to see an allergist.
