How do I find out if I have allergies?

To find out if you have allergies, talk to your doctor about your symptoms, when you get them and what makes them worse or better.

If you have severe symptoms, you may need to have allergy tests to find out what you are allergic to.

  • Your doctor may do a skin test. In this test your doctor puts a small amount of an allergen into your skin to see if it causes an allergic reaction.
