Krista Asked: Allergy Testing For Toddler?
I'm taking my 2 1/2 year old toddler for an allergy test tomorrow. I have his allergies narrowed down and do my best to avoid his triggers, but he also has seasonal allergies that even claritin doesn't completely help. He gets 2 baths a day (it really helps his skin), doesn't play outside in the early morning, and gets lotioned constantly. I'm not wondering what happens or if it will hurt him, I've heard enough about the process from people and internet searching. What I am wondering, though, is will the allergist be able to give him anything to help with his severe allergies? I would like to hear anyones experiences and I'm hoping I won't make a trip to the allergist just to hear what I already know he's allergic to, and that they won't be able to do anything for him except have me keep doing what I'm doing.
His allergies are on his skin, he has eczema that seems to make his skin itch INTENSLEY. As far as colds and congestion he doesn't have that. He does have asthma, but takes singular and that works great! He hasn't had asthma attacks since taking that medicine.
Thank you so much for any replies!
