It is very important to understand that oral challenges must only be performed under a controlled environment with a qualified medical doctor. Anaphylaxis can be sudden in onset and swift in progression. It can take just a very small amount of an allergen to provoke a reaction.

The following are websites with information regarding various testing methods doctors may use to confirm or rule out a specific sensitivity.
