:banana J just had his 6 monthly review (8monthly actually as he had to reschedule because he had antihistamine the day before his appointment). Things have turned around dramatically for him. The last 8 months have been the best for a very long time-only 2 episodes of random lip swelling, no hives, no random asthma, eczema perfect, nasal conjestion minimal.....and it all showed on his spt's. Barley and sunflower have gone from 25mm (huge) to 4-5 mm (sml) and all his others are less than 10mm. The barley result was so remarkable that they re spt'd and got the same result and so now we have just had a formal inpatient food challenge.
Day 1, after 4 hours and 4 teaspoons of barley, he had no reaction. He is now on day 2 and fine once again. Its all looking promising especially as this is one of his allergens that he has had instant anaphylaxis with throat swelling to in the past. We are trying not to get too far ahead of ourselves as he had anaphylaxis on day 5 of his previous peanut challenge....but we are very cautiously optimistic.
5 more days to go before the trial is officially over...fingers crossed!

Thank you Susan...he has officially passed today!! :happydance He looks fantastic-his eyes are as clear as they ever have been...his skin is perfect...he is very very well allergy wise at the moment and its great to see.
To lose barley is huge for us as it is really difficult (like the sunflower) due to the very poor labelling of it here (its often not specifically called barley..rather gluten or flour, breadcrumbs, malt, etc). Life is just about to become a lot easier.
thanks!
