This makes proper selection of patients and tests critical. Allergists are experts in this area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multiple food allergies. Last tested 2 years ago. Could i lose some food and allergies & gain new ones? 36f. Test again?
See an Allergist/Imm: First, food allergy testing can be falsely positive, so without knowing more of your history, it's hard to know if some of the tests were positive without a true allergy to that food. It can certainly happen that one may "outgrow" an allergy to one food and develop an allergy to a new food, but it is not frequent. If you haven't already done so, you should see an allergist/immunologist. ...Read more

What type of benadryll and how much benadryll should I give my 17 month old baby? She is also 18 lbs..She has a minor food allergy..
Maybe none...: Benadryl only relieves symptoms, it is not needed just because there is an allergy. It helps if the symptoms are hives or runny nose, but likely won't help if the symptoms are diarrhea, vomiting, eczema, or asthma. The best treatment is to avoid what she is allergic to. If she does need benadryl, make sure it has no other ingredients, only diphenhydramine, and the dose is about 1/2 tsp. ...Read more

How common is anapylaxis? Doc took blood and found no common food allergies does this mean i shouldnt worry or what? How often does a severe one occur
Consider it rare: It is hard to comment on your food allergy testing without knowing what type of testing was done. If they looked at IgE response the common offenders & yours were low, it suggests you would not have a risk of anaphylaxis with those foods. Other blood & skin tests do not always correlate with life experiences. If you get hives after eating a food, you probably will the next time, but not anaphylaxi ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
