Thank you for your inquiry.
Unfortunately, I can only give you my best “guess” in regards to your question. I have never seen the type of response after skin testing that you have described, and could find no reports of this type of reaction on searching the literature.
My impression, therefore, is that there was no cause and effect relationship between your patient’s reactions and the skin tests. I think that the timing was an unfortunate coincidence.
Thank you again for your inquiry.
