Humira/ false allergy results

Hi everyone,

I was hoping someone other there has information about whether humira affects allergy testing. I've been on humira for some time now but not to long ago I was referred to an allergy specialist just to ensure there are no pre-existing conditions as to why I continue to have back to back infections. Looks like I'm in the clear for everything---went to various specialists for the 'ok'(no hesitation to giving me antibiotics now) but I ended up getting flagged for various allergies...

one of which happens to be cats and i've lived with them for nearly 10 years now with no 'allergy' symptoms. The specialist says that in her experience she's seen many patients on humira who end up receiving flags but are not actually allergic. Something about the humira gives false results?

Has anyone had this happen while on humira?
