Anyone ever have a food allergy test done?

What do they do?

I think I have a gluten/dairy intolerance so I'm thinking about having a food allergy test done.

  • in mine, they had me lay on my back and poked me with little prickly things with the allergen on them. then if it got itchy and swelled then you were allergic to it. this was for outside things though, not food, but i assume its the same. I was like 10 when i had it done, so i can't remember everything.

  • They give you two pokes at first, one with the allergy stuuf and one control, then they start sticking you with the stuff you wanna be tested for.
