Allergies as a cause for Eczema? Does anyone have suggestions for what test to do to test for skin/food allergies?

I have been dealing with blistering Dishydrotic eczema on my hands and atopic dermatitis on my elbows and shoulders for years with flair ups with blisters and itching everywhere. I’m not too sure yet what causes the flair ups. I have heard that food sensitivities or contact allergies could be a cause. So I’m asking for thoughts and suggestions for what test is best and others experiences?

I had a patch test done for chemicals (through a dermatologist) and a skin prick test for food (through an allergist)
