5/365 Allergy Testing


Have you ever had this done to you? The boy was quite the trooper, he did really well, with exception to the actual skin poke part, at which point, he screamed. He calmed down rather quickly and did a fairly decent job at staying put. We had gone in, as he broke out in hives at my parents' house over Christmas.

We did not leave the allergist with any results though. He ended up reacting to everything, even the placebo, and at that point didn't feel the need to do more. He had gone through enough, and impressed everyone there with his communication skills and knowledge of the solar system.

Yes, both of my kids have been through that process :( Both were around 1 year (well, my boy was 18 months) when they did it. We actually just went Friday and our results were: he is allergic to peanuts, three nuts, eggs, and DOGS (of which we HAD 2)... a lot to process, but having answers and being able to take action for your baby is very empowering!
