Yuck... is that why they do the needle pricks on the back for allergies, because of the sensitivity??

Furthermore you cannot see spots and things...and worry about mysterious allergic reactions!Funkod 
Hmmm, should I or shouldn't I? LOL Okay, Doc, I will leave you alone for a minute...Karen, I had one of those tests done and asked my doc at the time...it was after that bit I told you in Activity4life forum. they do it because it is a flat surface, room, but because your back is highly sensitive to those things that you are supposed to be allergic to the most...I am supposed to be allergic to certain trees...when I hike I never have a reaction to any that were probable to an allergy as I don't suffer from allergies. I refuse to accept that sickness could be the problem too. LOL
I was thinking more along the lines of what is the smallest bump you could feel by running your fingers along an otherwise flat surface?
