Allergy Testing

We went to see the allergist today for Emily. I wasn't very impressed by the doctor.

They did a skin test for the most common eight food allergies. She didn't react to any of them, but because we know her allergy has something to do with milk, he did a second milk spot when the first one didn't react. My mom and I thought the second spot reacted a little bit, but the doctor said it was a negative reaction. 

Emily did very well when they poked her and it didn't seem to bother her at all while we waited for a reaction.

He wants us to give her clariton once a day for a month or so and see if it prevents her hives. So we'll do that and see what happens...
