My 3 1/2 is scheduled for her food challenge test on Thursday (after having tested negative on both prick test and cap rast test) And I am really nervous and my husband and I are questioning if we should do it.

I want to know if there are any risks of this test, do you think it is safe, is there a risk of death. Does anyone ever have a bad reaction to epi-pen? Should we get the test done?
Thanks for responding I need reassurance.
The reason I really want the test done is that I really want to know if she is definately allergic. She has only had one reaction when she was 11 months, and she vomited after a meal a friends house another time. thats all.
Thanx Shirley
