I had my son tested a couple weeks ago and they did the scratch test on his back for wheat, dairy, soy, eggs and peanuts. All came back negative but he is clearly reacting to something in his diet.

What my other options for allergy testing? Or anyway they test for sensitivites besides elimination diets and reintroducing foods?

I saw a post that mentioned enterolab so I googled that and I had no idea - so that's why I'm wondering if I'm missing something.

thanks

Elimination diets are the most accurate way to go, but there are some other options for food intolerances. ELISA test, ALCAT test, patch testing, muscle testing, crystal testing..... (check my blog for more info.)
