food challenge... Should I do it???
My dd is three now. She has had two rast tests, one at 18 mos and one at 34 mos. She was a level 5 21,000. This time level 4 14,000. Our allergist said that isn't a significant change. She has had skin testing done at around the same time. The first he said was severe I don't know the size of the wheal. The second was a little more severe.
What bothers me is she ate peanut products for almost a year before the first test. She has never once had a reaction. She always has eczema I cant remember it flaring up anymore than normal. She was also a level 5 to cats the first time and level four the second test and never had a reaction to cats other than maybe eczema flare up. She is a level 3 to egg whites and eats eggs. She was a level four to soy beans and i never had to watch for soybeans. She is now a level one to soy beans.
well after all these tests I'm confused. I treat her pa very seriously. Although I honestly feel she doesn't have a pa. Her allergist said no to a food challenge in june, but now he is saying yes. It's scheduled for feb and I'm scared. What do I do????
