Yesterday I took my now 3 year old to the allergies for a scratch test. It has been 2 years since his last one which was when he was a year old. He has been having weight and height gaining issues for over a year now and he still the same weight. Which can mean many things. So wanted to take another round of allergy testing to see if their was any new food allergies we need to know about. They did the test we sat for 15 minutes watching a movie on his kindle. He didn’t cry or anything just sat there nicely. The nurse came in wrote down her finding and the doctor came in she loved it over too and told me he is allergic to peanuts (nothing new), almounds (new), cashews (new), seasme seeds (new), wheat (new) and shellfish (not new). His egg was a zero which means he might be able to eat eggs again. She order his a blood test to confirm the new and old allergy. We will be doing that on Friday since he has a wellness appointment I can get it done at the same time. What worries me is the wheat allergy. We do have a family member that has celiac so if is possible that he does as well. I’ll have him tested for that as well.

He really did so well during that test. He sure does have quite a few items he has to avoid.

Your little guy certainly is brave to go through all those tests. Gosh it must be hard having to deal with allergies at such a young age.

Yes it is hard but for him it seems normal because he doesn’t remember every having it. He could put grow it but it’s a possibility that he won’t.

Oh my gosh! Such a big boy about the test! I hope he got a good prize after. I have two kids with allergies: a five year old and 19 month old. It was agony doing the tests with my five year old. Its odd how they can out grow certain food allergy. However very important to remember all of it because as they get older they will come back!

Yes it is and it’s also important to get tested often too. He got a hot chocolate first. He went from 3 commons food allergies to 5 common food allergies.
