Have you ever had your child allergy tested? Can you tell me what to expect? My 5 year old son is scheduled for testing next week.
He has had hives off and on for 2 years without any apparent trigger (meaning nothing new as far as foods, detergents, soaps, ect.)
The allergist wants to do a skin test. The info I was given said he will get "pricks" on his backs and tiny injections on his arms.
How did your child handle it? And how did YOU handle it? I cried when he got vaccinated, but composed myself quickly. The thought of watching him go through a whole lot of pricks and pokes though makes me want to cry!
And if you for whatever reason don't agree with allergy testing and/or vaccinating - then please move on and don't leave rude comments. Thanks :)
