What is the procedure for getting tested for allergies?
Does the doctor take a blood sample, skin tissue, etc...? How long does it take to determine what the person is allergic to? does it take several doctor visits to find out? I would appreciate some insight from someone who has been tested for allergies. Thank you.

Also, is it painful?

usual procedure is no allergy meds for 24-48 hours prior to the testing time.

Then you go in and on your back they draw a very large checkerboard. Into each box they put a drop of a single allergen and then use a small wire instrument to scratch the skin or each one, *different scratcher for each spot, no cross contamination* then you wait up to 1 hour. The things you are allregic to will turn bright red and most likely itch quite a bit. The other spots that dont show anything you arent allregic too most likely. This is how it was done to me just a few years back when I was tested again to see if there were changes, styles might be different, medicine is always changing.
