In brief: No Infection no test

It is not contagious or infectious, and cannot be transmitted like a cold .
It is a toxic exposure to the pfiesteria release of subtances into river and estuarine waters. It appears to cause skin irritation and cognitive impairmemnt. There is no test available or known. There is no infectious agent in the body to test for as this is a toxic side effect only.
