The correct option is A

False


Allergy can be diagnosed by three different ways that are a blood test, scratch test, and skin test. In a skin test, the skin is pricked with a small amount of allergen. This test is usually done in order to identify allergies to dust, pollen, food or dust mites. In the scratch test, the skin is scratched in rows with an allergen. If the skin becomes red or swells, that means the person is allergic. Blood tests are done to measure the amount of IgE antibodies to specific foods. IgE, short for “immunoglobulin E,” is the antibody that triggers food allergy symptoms. Higher the IgE antibody value, greater the chances of allergic symptoms. Surgery is not carried out for any allergy.
