So, we went to the Dr today to have DD's hives checked and they are thinking peanut allergy & possible freaking SOY...FANTASTIC! So she can't have dairy, now no soy and peanut butter...WHAT is she going to eat! If something doesn't have dairy, it usually has soy! UGHHH
They tried to take blood but it would flow out and she was screaming, I was crying; it was a nightmare. DH and I have to take her back to try again another day when he has off because I can't do it alone. They told me that the IF it was soy it probably because since taking her off dairy, her soy intake increased with soy yogurts and butter, etc...
We are doing benedryl until the hives are totally gone and then will do a test with Zyrtec- she basically takes it and when she has been hive free for 24 hours, we take her off and see if they pop again, after recording all that she eats, if they pop up she goes back on Zyrtec and then if it happens again, they will do another allergy test!
I am hoping the allergy test gives us something conclusive so we don't have to do this ellimination diet for too long. She is not a big eater to begin with!
Anyhow, the point to my post is to ask what sort of testing you guys went through.
