How Can Allergies in Kids be Diagnosed?

Allergies in kids can be diagnosed through a combination of medical history, physical examination, and specific allergy tests. The doctor will ask about the child’s symptoms, their frequency, and any potential triggers. Allergy tests such as skin prick tests or blood tests (like the ImmunoCAP test) can help identify specific allergens causing the symptoms. In some cases, an elimination diet might be recommended to pinpoint food allergies.
