Well, I took Ryan to the allergist this morning and it went okay. We know he had peanut allergy becuase of the Rast test we had. The number was low on the rast but the reaction to the scrach test was pretty severe. Even the doctor was surprised at how large it was. We also confirmed that he does have egg white allergy...although the rast told us he had no egg allergy even after being exposed. Thank God I refused to give him a flu shot...yikes! I knew he did...his reactions were not pretty when he had eggs. We thought he was allergic to dog...nope...but he still gets hives when licked. We think maybe grandma's dog's food has egg or even maybe peanut. She WILL be checking into this.
So we got more EpiPen Jrs. and got some new cream for his exema.
He did pretty darn good...such a sweet little man:)
