pMorgan's test came in the mail in the form of an 18 page letter detailing what she tested positive to and what we should do about it. She tested positive to peanuts (they put a little dot on her arm and it hived right up), questionable to walnut (so he said to avoid if she had a bad reaction to, like I'm even going to chance it!), milk and egg (but since she eats those now with no problem, he said she probably outgrew them), molds, dusts, dust mite, pollens, dogs, cats, horse, hog, rabbit, feather, cottenseed, flaxseed, kapok (whatever that is) and some other weird things. So now we are fairly certain that it was the peanut that caused her severe reaction. I'm surprised that she had so many significant allergies as she really doesn't present with many problems. Her Dr. is concerned about asthma(both her sisters have it as does her dad), so I think that's why even though she really doesn't have a lot of problems, he wants us to do all the steps to get rid of all allergens. Now we have 2 PA daughters, and praying that our other doesn't become allergic all the sudden like Morgan did./p

Wow sounds like you have your hands full! I have to agree with your Dr. Does he/she recommend allergy shots? My son wound up in the hospital with his asthma with his then allergist before they started the allergy shots. What a world of difference! An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Sorry to hear about the 2nd PA in the family. It is difficult I'm sure but at least you are already educated and prepared for this allergy. Blessings to you! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
