Annual SPT and wheal bigger than last time!?!?!?
So I took my little guy in to the allergist today for another SPT. It had been a year since his 1st spt when we found out he had pna. I have been SO vigilant in making sure he stayed away from all possible pn/tn. I admit I was hopeful since he was first tested at 4 months old that perhaps it was a false positive and I thought for sure it would at least be a smaller wheal if nothing else since I've been keeping him away from pn/tn.
Last year his wheal for pn was 9mm and today it was 10.5mm. How does it get bigger???? I'm taking him for a RAST draw tomorrow but I'm sure it will be almost a month by the time the military hospital gets the results to my allergist (we're military and will go on-post for the blood draw, but the allergist is civilian).
I just don't understand why it was worse today than it was a year ago when I don't think he has had any exposure at all....sigh.....
