Has anyone been tested for food allergies?

I break out in welts almost everyday and I do not know what it is from. Some days are worse than others. Sometimes I get one or two on my arm or hand, and other days I get them all over and scratch so much that I leave scabs.

I was told that I should tell my doctor that I want to be yested for food allergies. What oes this consist of and would you recommend it?
