Blood test vs Skin test

I had done a blood test for allergies and a skin test, but on the blood test it showed an allergy to wheat, but nothing showed up for wheat during the skin test. Does this mean wheat is likely not allergenic for me?

The blood test, in my opinion, is usually the most accurate. I would also try my own test. Avoid all wheat products for a week or so, see how you feel, then slowly add it back, if you feel worse when you eat it again, you are more than likely allergic to it, or at least sensitive to it.
