antihistamines before allergist appointment
We have our first allergist appointment thursday afternoon. I was told not to give him antihistamines 72 hours prior, which isn't a problem since I've never had to give him benadryl. Today he was eating a banana...now he registered as a 0.54 for bananas on the blood test but he used to eat them daily so I was told not to worry about. he registered slightly higher than that for milk and that's all he drinks. His eyes started watering and he got these little spots by his temples which were original signs of a reaction. without thinking I gave him benadryl. He's fine and had no more symptoms. I plan on calling the doc back but it's a 2 hour drive away and I have to be down there that day, do you think they'll still let us keep the appointment or will I have to drive down again a second time?
