Hi everyone. I am unfortunately joining this board after a blood test showed my 15 month old son is allergic to peanuts and eggs. He is also MPI so I'd been dealing with that, but am most worried about the peanut allergy. I have an appointment with an allergist on Wednesday and they said they will do a skin test. Anyone know what kind of skin test they do for such a little one? I have non-food allergies and got shots for years, so I have visions of that awful scratch test where they make you sit itching without being able to scratch the hives. Will they do that? Of course I"ll find out soon, but I am worrying.
Also, of those of you with peanut allergies - how many have to make their entire house peanut free? I love my peanut butter and am still breastfeeding!
