Wanna find out if i have alergy to something.

I just wanna know if i got alergy to anything or not, i asked my family doc, but she told nothing can be done, allergologist cant check you for all possible causes, u must have suspection for alergy on anything then we can check theres no other way.
Is this true?
What about i remember seeing in drugstore some test called like "check if u got alergy for 60 things" are this tests precise or i need special clinical test?

I must check if i got alergy for dust, and anaesthesia that dantists use.

Hi,

You can be tested for all allergies by seeing a Allergist Doctor. You will need to see your Doctor for a referral to this Doctor.

Every Anaesthetic is the same (Doctors & Dentists use the same one) and it is highly unlikely you will be allergic to this. Being allergic to Anaesthetic is not Allergy related. It is a Allergic reaction.

Re: Wanna find out if i have alergy to something.

Your doctor is full of it. You can't check for every single possible cause, but when you get allergy tested they test for 40-60 common allergies routinely. And dust is one of them.

Are you having symptoms of allergies?

There are many different types of anesthesia, and you can have a reaction to some and not others. I'm not sure though, if a doctor can test you for this though.
