What are the best allergy tests?

I'm looking into getting my daughter tested for allergies, specifically foods like tomatoes. There are so many tests out there, anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Re: What are the best allergy tests?

Blood test for food allergies seem to be the best whereas the scratch test for environmental allergies seems to be more definitive.

That's interesting, makes a lot of sense, I'd never heard that before. Thanks!
