Help, I'm new!
I have a year old daughter and we found out about 2 months ago that she is allergic to peanut, tree nuts, wheat, egg (whites and yolks), soy and oat. We know she will only have a skin reaction if exposed to wheat, egg, soy and oat because she has ate them before we knew of her allergy. She has never been exposed to nuts of any kind before so her allergenist told us to prepare for anything (epi pens are on hand!) I'm not sure that I understand all of the terminology, but she had both a skin test and blood test. The blood test came back with a number 32 which her dr said was very, very high. What exactly is the number called? And what is a normal number? I should have asked when I was there but I was so overwhelmed with everything...like I said..I'm new to this all. No one else in my family has any allergies at all!
