A mannitol challenge test measures how sensitive your lungs are. It can help your doctor review symptoms such as coughs, chest tightness and shortness of breath.

Skin prick test

A skin prick test measures your sensitivity to common air allergens such as pollen or dust mites.

Pulmonary function test

A pulmonary function test measures how well your lungs are working.
