My poor son is a victim to seasonal allergies. Last week he missed 2 1/2 days from school due to allergies and pink eye(Well what we THOUGHT was pink eye). This weekend his allergies attacked him. I took him to school this morning, he was fine. i went and had lunch with him today and stayed for about the first 15 minutes of recess and he was fine. I get home and not even an hour later I see "Rogers public schools" on the caller id. The nurse called to tell me that B needed his eye drops. He already had his eye drops this morning and wasn't due for another dose til tonight. She then continued to tell me that his eyes were swelled and he couldn't open them without pain.
I get to the school and low and behold, the whites of the eyes were swelled to almost golf ball size. I am so glad I called the doctor before I went to get him. Yep, allergies again! The doctor was finally able to get his eyes open and cleansed. continued...

Just saw your other posts. I was the child with allergies that bad...well worse. A dose of penicillin almost killed me when I was 5 years old. I was in and out of hospitals from newborn to 4 years old when they finally took my tonsils out, which did help. Before allergy shots, I needed a cortisone shot once every 3 months just to keep my immune system strong enough to fight off various respiratory illnesses. I also have a ton of food allergies. My first cousin and niece are also just as bad. I also have a severe latex allergy.
