Hello, I have a question concerning the insect allergy remedial questionnaire. The form states to confirm if I have ever been diagnosed with an insect allergy. The problem is that I have never been to a doctor for my allergy; but rather, I diagnosed myself with the ant allergy because I do get hives and swelling at the bite. I was wondering if the form means diagnosed as in I was diagnosed by a doctor and if that is the case--should I notify them that I was never diagnosed but rather self-diagnosed myself. Thanks.

Only doctors make medical diagnoses.

Diagnosed means diagnosed by a medical professional. Dr. Mom or self diagnosed does not count. Answer the question Have you ever been diagnosed with an insect allergy? (e.g., bee stings, fire ant bites etc.)? with a big NO! Not much to fill out on the form when you answer No.
