Re: child with allergies
Allergy testing is only good for children 5 years and older.. it is an adult testing method and often gives false negatives in children under the age of 5. My son was tested at the age of two.. nada. Mild dust and mold, with strong reaction to smoke inhalants. But he still exhibited all the signs of allergies. The allergist will see and note this and give you zyrtec, nasonex, and maybe singular. You might also have to start carrying an epi-pen.
Also try making the animals completely in or out. It could be an animal allergy or an allergy to something they have been rolling or laying in.. pets are bad about bringing allergens in and out. Wash hands after petting and playing with the animals as well.
Best of luck managing your allergies. My whole family fights them.. it can be annoying, but it is managable.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
