I was wondering if anyone has any experience reading the test results of scratch tests.
I had a scratch test done a while back and was told I was allergic to cats and some variety of mold, i think. . Today I went to my doctors office and asked for a copy of those results because I wanted to see exactly what it was I was allergic to and because I wanted to see if he had tested me for food allergies. Turns out I wasn't ( the nurse said so) I suspect I'm allergic to wheat.
The things I was allergic to have numbers on them I'm assuming the higher the number the worse my reaction?
It says cladosporium clad. U(o) - 1+
penicillium notatum U (i) - 1+
A. fumigatus U (i) - 1+
EH - 1 Cat Hair - 2
EP - 1 Cat Pelt - 1+
Grain s m u t mix o - 2
I have no idea what the grain s m u t mix means and I looked online but can't seem to find anything on it.. Has anyone else had this on their results?
Also on the beginning of the list is listed things like : HR-G , HR-A, Dil(A), HA etc.
it shows a 3 next to the HA but I have no idea what this means....
I wish they would use plain english on these tests lol
Can anyone help?
P.S. I had to right the grain word with spaces cause it censored me ...
