In brief: No test Not infected

There is no infection present as the symptoms of skin irritation and cognitive difficulty are believed to be a result of toxins released from the organism known as pfiesteria.
Nothing invades the body as a germ that can be tested and there is no immune response. The diagnosis at present is based on symptoms and known exposure only.
