Well, my 15 month old has had her 3rd skin test this morning, and NO NEW ALLERGIES!!! :D I was very anxious because she had bad diaper rashes after eating some foods, and I was wondering if it was allergy related. My allergist didn't think so, but suggested we test those foods to make sure, and it was all negative! It also looks like her egg allergy is weakening, which gives me hope about all the others (which were pretty similar to her last tests 6 months ago). We go back in July, and if the tendency with the egg allergy is the same, we'll do blood tests to have a more accurate picture!

The one "bad" news is that she probably has asthma... The weird breathing reactions (totally out of the blue and not food-related) were probably small asthma attacks. We did a training at the hospital this morning, and we are now proud owners of a pump and AeroChamber! Oh well, if it happens again, at least now we know what to do, and won't have to run to the ER and by the time we make it, she's calmed down in the car and her breathing is back to normal!

Wonderful news (the allergy tests, not the asthma)!

I'm impressed that the hospital does asthma training of any kind.
I'm sorry that your little one was diagnosed with asthma. I'm glad that you have come away with some sound advice on how to treat this condition and that you are feeling confident that it is managable.
