Justin had an appointment with his allergist today, mostly a check-up to see how he’s doing and make sure he’s not developing any asthma or reflux, both of which are common in kids with food allergies. And so far, he’s very healthy! Yay!
Even better, Justin was allowed to skip a skin prick test and will likely only have to do them once a year or every other year from now on. This is great news because the test involves a lot of little very itchy scratches on his back and one very miserable boy.
We were also given the go-ahead to try fish, shellfish and oats in small amounts. If all goes well, and he has no reactions, we’ll be able to add a whole lot of new foods to Justin’s diet (mmm… oatmeal cookies!) I’ll update after we try them out!
