A 26-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

I had skin allergy test done years ago. Got results like 4/6 6/6 15/15. What are these numbers referring to? What is the scale? Is 15/15 severe?

Allergies : These numbers mean nothing and can only be interpreted by a physician who uses this scale. I would suggest you be retested if you are still having problems. Good Luck
