Your right, the docs can't test for a specific
drug. But they can tell you what you are
alergic to, such as weeds, grasses, dust, etc.
My ex wife would break out and we could'nt figure
it out. After extensive tests the docs decided
it was stress. (she had just had her first
child a few months earlier). She started taking
it a little easier. getting help from the
grammas and also taking a weak trank.
It cleared up after about 6 weeks.
So, I guess what I'm trying to say is even if
it is not the meds, you can't find out unless
you do a little investigating and try to stay
away from what they say you ARE alergic to.
I can;t have any type of nut. When I was
a kid I could'nt figure out why my throat
would almost swell shut after eating peanuts.
I told my mom and she took me to an alergist.
That is a simple example but there are all kinds
of things you could be alergic to.
Some times it takes a few days for it to show up
also. My ol buddy from the army would break out
really bad a day or so after buffing the floors.
Turned out he was alergic to the wax. We all
told him he was alergic to WORK...
