This is going to sound like a stupid question to most of you, I'm sure. As most of you know from a previous thread I started, I'm having both kids allergy tested this coming Monday. I can't remember, I had my tests done 15+ years ago and also as a child. Will I have the skin test results right away? Thanks for any information! Best wishes! [img][/img]

10-15 minutes for results of a skin prick test for peanuts, Cindy.
And good luck!

Thank-you L&Mjoe. So, it's basically the same as when I had them done last. They put the allergen in the different scratch marks and then you go and sit and wait and then the doctor comes and looks at each mark on your arm and see if it has reacted? Thanks so much. I just feel like it was a really stupid question because I know that I am in the minority of people who have not had their children tested. Best wishes! [img][/img]

I think it is funny how you worded "and then we go sit down and wait..." I wish that it was how my son's experience was. Those fifteen minutes were the worst time ever! He was running through the halls screaming, "I want to go HOME!" His back itched so much and he wanted to scratch the welts on his back. My younger son did fine and the itching did not seem to bother him. Of course, the size of the wheals were much different.

NaomiR, and yes, those words written by a woman whose children are regularly put in "time out" by the doctor when they go in to have their chests checked when they have a cold (asthma)! It should be interesting Monday, to say the least. I'm already starting to have some difficulty with Jesse because he can't have his Claritin until after the tests Monday and his environmental allergies are acting up already! I know how I get if I can't take an antihistamine so I completely empathize with him, but..... You know I'll let everyone know how it went on Monday. Thanks so much for the information and concern. Best wishes! [img][/img]
