In Reply to: SEVERE ALLERGY QUESTION posted by Bob on August 01, 2000 at 16:20:27:

: My 8 year old son had an unknown I assume allergic reaction 2 days ago. It was so bad he broke out in hives and his eyes swelled to the point he could not see.He also was having a hard time breathing ending up in the emergency room. He is about to go testing from an allergist, is this common to be so severe?

if your child had such a bad reaction ask them to do a latex test and ta patch test called a true test. both of these are very inprotant if he is allergic to latex and he goes to the hospital and is having a reaction to latex and they are using latex on him it can kill him also you should ask the doct about having a epi-pen on hand incase this happens again. because this can save his life. good luck if he has a latex allergy contact p-latex@juno .com for support and suggestions
i think i have been through it all. latex is more like a disease than an allergy i hope he does not have this.
