My KOH Test Experience

Yesterday, I wrote about me having to undergo a KOH test to rule out fungal infection as the culprit of the nasty rashes on my neck. I already had the test this morning and it was just simple and quick. All the nurse did was to put a few drops of potassium peroxide on a glass slide and scrape a thin layer of my skin off.

There was a burning sensation after the nurse scraped my rash with the glass slide and it stung for about a minute. It sounds painful but it was bearable, really. Nothing to cause fear over people in nurses uniform, LOL!

I'm supposed to get the results in two days. I'll post an update by then.
