After the history and physical exam, and the review of the relevant previous tests and medical records, you and your allergist will decide if any further testing is necessary. This may include skin testing and or blood tests to clarify what you or your child are allergic to, lung function tests to objectively diagnose or help fine-tune control of asthma, or radiological images such as a sinus CT scan or chest x-ray.
