Test Food Allergy at Home
My kid (4 yrs old)
has peanut allergy and may have tree nut allergy. My doctor said the government (Canada) only allow him to do the blood test for the tree nut after he had some reaction from eating tree nut. If I let him to try tree nut 1st time, will it cause very serious reaction and needs to use Epinephrine? If everytime when we try the new food and needs to use Epinephrine for the reaction, I may prefer to avoid the testing. Can anyone tell me mostly how serious the reaction is at the first time of a food allergy?
