Skin testing is the most widely used and the most helpful in finding the cause of allergies. There are several different methods, but all involve exposing the skin to small amounts of various substances and observing the reactions over time.
Specific iGe tests generally identify IgE antibodies to specific antigens, or allergy triggers.
Other tests involve eliminating certain allergens from your environment and then re-introducing them to see if a reaction occurs.
People with a history of serious or anaphylactic reactions may be prescribed an auto-injector, sometimes called a bee-sting kit or EpiPen. This contains a premeasured dose of epinephrine. You carry this with you and inject yourself with medication immediately if you are exposed to a substance that causes a severe allergic reaction.
