Touch, Smell Sensitive
Can you be one without the other?
Can you be Touch sensitive and not Smell Sensitive?
If I answer this question based on my son's reaction to both ingestion and smell I can say Yes because when he was scratch tested he didn't have a bad reaction like I think some Touch sensitive would. Although, he did act nervous and said it tingled, there certainly wasn't hives or blisters or worse, like some experience.
But then again I have never put peanut butter on his skin to test.
Is this something the allergists should be testing before they let our kids go to a school that has peanuts/nuts?
