Say: skin test
If you think that you might have allergies,
a special doctor called an allergist (say: ah-lur-jist) can help
figure out what you are allergic to by giving you a skin test. For this test, the
doctor will use different liquids, each containing a small amount of stuff that a
person can be allergic to, such as pollen or certain foods. The doctor puts a drop
of each liquid on your arm or back and then lightly pricks the skin. If you get a
red, itchy bump there, you'll know you're allergic!
