Allergic Reaction Diagnosis
For typical allergic reactions, a doctor will examine an individual and ask questions about his or her symptoms and their timing. Blood tests and X-rays are not needed except under unusual circumstances.
In the case of severe reactions, an individual will be evaluated quickly in an emergency department in order to make a diagnosis. The first step for the doctor is to judge the severity of the allergic reaction.
