Has anyone out there had any testing done with their children to find out if conditions they have may be caused by certain allergies to foods? I'm just at a point where I am wondering if there is something my son may be eating that may be causing his seasonal allergies, some occasion signs of asthma when his seasonal allergies are bad or he has a cold, a little bit of excema, ADD, and now maybe a diagnosis of PDD or Asperger's.
I don't like the fact that we have him on 3 and sometimes 4 medicines at the same time.
He's been on a chewable pill for allergies and asthma, and then with four ear infections last winter (first he ever had ear infections) we had a nasal spray added, and when the asthma strikes up an inhaler, and now ADD meds.
We tried allergy testing last year and he freaked out. We had to leave. I myself went through 5 yrs of allergy shots mainly for seasonal stuff, and most of the year take a pres. allergy med.
I'm just wondering how I would rule out food allergies and what kind of plan would I follow.
Anyone out there who has done food allergy testing or who is also feeling like I do about too many meds??
