To answer your questions fully, one would need to write a whole book. Each allergic reaction will have a specific diagnostic test and the treatment differs in each case including avoidance, medication to suppress symptoms and/or desensitisation. Try contacting the Allergy Foundation of SA, they have a very good website at www.allergyfoundation.co.za
