Allergy Testing

Skin Prick Test

Yesterday, I took Christopher to see his current Allergist.  She said that the Skin Prick Testing is only 40-60 percent indicative that he is “truly” allergic to a food.
The most reliable test, in her opinion, is to give him the food that shows an allergic reaction, and closely observe him to see if he has any itching, discomfort, hives or throat closing…
With a child that is non-verbal, this is not a very easy task unless his reactions are severe.  And, in the event that his reactions are severe, a true allergic reaction is a scary thing to handle for all those involved.
