Hi. I'm new to this board and have a 7 yr old daughter who has PA since she was 18 mos old. She has a skin prick test every other year and when I asked about the RAST, her allergist said there were many false positives and to just stay away from all nuts which we do. So now I am wondering after doing much reading on this site... should I pursue getting the RAST test...would I be doing anything different w/these results?
