New- Need advice for Allergist
My 15 month DD had her first taste of peanut butter this weekend. I was across the street at a neighbor's house and my DH called frantically telling me to come home. When I got there her eyes were almost completely swollen shut and she looked like she had been in a boxing match. We grabbed our 3 year old and went to the urgent care around the corner. The urgent care doctor treated her initially and then sent us to our local children's hospital via ambulance. She is doing fine now and luckily we are able to get in this afternoon to see the pediatric allergist our pediatrician recommended.
Since I am new to this are there questions I need to ask, subjects I need to make sure he goes over with me, etc? Any recommendations?
