Tuesdays are Your Turn – Allergy Testing
From my email:
My daughter has had asthma for 3 years and this had been quite an learning experience. I am curious if other families have had their kid allergy tested and if they found that beneficial? The great chase for the trigger!!! – Jen
I took my 11 year-old asthma kid in for a skin test when she was five. That’s when I learned of her strong dust mite allergy – and also learned that such things called “dust mites” exist in the first place – and that I needed to encase her mattress and pillows in zippered hypoallergenic covers post-haste.
In fact, learning about that dust mite allergy and finally understanding my child needed a daily controller inhaler are the two lifestyle changes that helped my daughter the most, and especially at night.
So: beneficial? For us, absolutely.
How about the rest of you?
What are your experiences with allergy testing and triggers?
