Son has food allergies and eczema, but healthy. Twice now, in a couple months, he has had a low temp while sick(96.3) His norm:97.5. Worry?

I've never had food allergies & tested neg for them, but do have eczema & chronic hives. does this mean i'll react to big allergens like nuts & fish?

Not necessarily: In fact, your own experience with eating nuts and fish is a much more reliable indicator of whether you're actually allergic than the results of skin testing will be. I think your allergist will tell you the same thing. The best way to determine whether your skin issues are due to allergy is a few weeks' trial of an elimination diet. Ask about it. ...Read more
