I took my 13 year old daughter in for allergy testing yesterday. What led to this was that she has always had a history of allergies but it wasn't until a few months ago that her allergies got so severe that her lymph nodes in her neck enlarged. Her ENT doc put her on allergy medications (Allegra, Singulair and NasocortAQ). The test revealed that she is allergic to trees, mold, grasses, weeds, cockroaches, dust, dustmites, cats and dogs. So to help alleviate her allergies I agreed to submit her to allergy shots. I am hoping that these shots will start working eventually and she will be able to get off the allergy medications - she's like a typical kid and it's like pulling teeth to get her to take her medications. Is there anyone out there that can share their stories about
allergy shots? Good or bad?
We are in the process of making her bedroom a "safe" room. I ordered mattress and pillow covers. We removed her stuff animals, took down her curtains, and we are going to pull her carpet this weekend. I also ordered an air purifier.
