A couple questions about allergies?!?!? please help
 
so i went to get an allergy test a couple weeks ago and found out im allergic to grass pollen ragweed pollen tree pollen and summer molds.
the guy was a bit older and he put a bunch of liquids on my arm and then stuck a needle through each liquid thing, well this one night i didnt go out at all all day and i woke up in the morning with 5 bumps which i beleive are hives on my side. is it possible he missed one of the liquid dots and im allergic to something inside, or can summer molds be inside? cause my nose is runny a lot and i sneeze a lot as well. im just curious as to why i had these hives and symptoms when my allergies are outdoor?

If I am understanding your post correctly, your testing was on your arm, and the next morning you had hives on your side. I'll bet there was transferrance of some of the allergen solution from laying on your arm during sleep. Even though your allergies are to outdoor things, those pollens circulate in the air and come indoors through open windows and air currents.

You're in a basement with no windows? Isn't that against fire code? And I'm sure there are molds in that basement...of some sort.

I have no idea what summer molds are unless that's mold due to a specific plant. All I've ever been told is that I am allergic to mold period. And you can get hives anywhere - even inside your mouth.
