I had one of those allergy tests too. They told me I had a skin condition that shows I’m allergic to everything on those tests but I’m really not. So, I still don’t know what I’m allergic to.

I feel you. Was it the adhering part? I ended up testing oh so positive to synthetic resin and every sticky product will make my skin have bad eczema for weeks and blisters in worse cases. The dermatologist was surprised when she peeled off the tapes holding the test patches on my back.

Same thing happened to an acquaintance. She drive 5h to the clinic, laid there for a couple hours while they painstakingly pricked samples over most of her back (I had my allergy tests on my inner arm, but she's got a LOT of allergies so I assume she was given a much larger array of samples which wouldn't fit on the arms), and then turned into a mass of blisters, swelling, hives & rashes that took ages to heal, necessitating a whole second trip to the city to try again.
It was not that they'd used latex bandages (surely an allergist would avoid latex religiously?) but something in the adhesive of the "low risk" bandages. She learned that day that she can't trust "hypoallergenic" products.
