Hi it's me again....the bronchiectasis and COPD lady. Was wondering if any of you bronchiectasis/COPD folk out there have ever been given an appointment for a 'Skin Allergy Test'? I asked the respiratory consultant that I had seen last week to have another lung function test and a letter came in the post this morning inviting me for that and also a 'Skin Allergy Test'. I think this must be some test for dust or pollen allergic reactions by putting something on the skin perhaps? Why would someone with bronchiectasis and COPD be given this test? Anyway, rather than bothering the respiratory secretary twice in one week I thought I would first of all place the question on here to see if anyone has had this test done before.
Thanks so much. xxx
