A 25-year-old female asked:

What does a result of 6/15 or 8/15 mean as a reaction to dog dander after allergy skin testing?

Sensitive: The numerator is the size of the wheal or bump on the skin test. The denominator is the size of the flare, or the redness around the bump. It means you are allergic to dog dander.
