Phadiotop is a screen test for inhalant allergens. It contains a mixture of various commonly occuring allergens. If the test is positive a breakdown of the components should be done to identify the spesific allergens causing the symptoms. It seems that this was done on you and Bermuda grass and Timothy grass came up positive. Management: avoid contact with grass. If still symptoms treat with antihistamines or intranasal steroids
