What are Allergy Tests?

Transcript: What are allergy tests? Allergy tests are ways to find out if you have allergy antibody immune globulin against some type of allergen like ragweed or dust mite. We would typically do skin tests, which is a drop on your skin and poke the skin slightly and then a mosquito bite looking reaction would happen if you have the allergy globulin.
