New to site, What to ask allergist?
My 13.5 month old son had an anaphylactic reaction to peanut butter last week. After an ambulance ride and a visit to the ER he was fine. We were prescribed 2 epi pens by my ped and reffered to an allergist.
We meet him this Friday at which time I believe they plan to do skin testing. My son has had mild, mild eczema since 4 months of age. Other than that, he seems fine.
What questions should I be asking? I see where some prefer to do CAP RAST instead of skin testing. Certainly he won't do a skin test of peanuts will he????
I'm trying to soak it all up and put a similar post on the Main bb...but any help you can give me would be very deeply appreciated. TIA
