Peanut Allergy: Skin Prick Testing (SPT) coming soon.

Posted Feb 23 2011 1:06pm
B is going for her annual allergy checkup next week. 

I think we'll have a skin test (like we do every year).  And, like every other year, I'm sure she'll fight it.  Can't say I blame her - according to my sources (my mom and my husband) those things ARE NOT fun.  Itching and not being able to scratch for 15 minutes?  NO THANKS.

I think I'm at the stage where I'm not even getting my hopes up that it will be a negative reaction.  Because if I get my hopes up, I'll just be disappointed when that dreaded pink bump surfaces.

Can you tell I'm having a pity party today? 

B keeps insisting that even if she has a negative skin test she absolutely WILL NOT eat peanuts or peanut butter for an in-office challenge.

How did I get such a hard-headed kid?  Oh, wait, she's just like me. :)
