What does it mean when my blood test says I am not allergic to bees but the skin test says I am ?

In brief: Depends

On when the tests were performed? if done right after a severe reaction to a bee sting, likely that will both be negative.
If after 4-6 weeks of a severe reaction, if there is a discrepancy, then the skin test, if performed properly, would be more accurate, confer with your allergist, best wishes
