We go in for skin testing next thursday to try and figure out what the ANA reaction was too. We have no idea what the reaction was too but the allergist is testing for tree nuts, seeing if the egg could have developed into ANA, and possibly a few other things that he might think of. I am nervous about this one. How likely is it that a child will react ANA to a skin test?
Nathan had skin testing after his ana reaction to a cashew...I was a mess about thinking it could cause another ana reaction once the cashew anitgen was put on his skin and pricked in but it didn't....the allergist told me it can happen but is very very rare...he ate 1 cashew and a bite or two out of another cashew and his throat swelled shut almost immediately....so i was really nervous considering it didn't take very much for the ana reaction...
ANA is anaphylaxis. Danny's took a few minutes and it didn't swell completely shut. He couldn't swallow and said his throat felt funny and his food was choking him. his lip swelled up really big too. That should mean that he will not have ANA with the skin test. Was that Nathan's first time eating cashews?
Yep it was the first time he had eaten it. He had had a few cookies that had pecans in them and nothing happened. He had drank some almond milk and nothing happened, he just said he didn't like it. He's allergic to all tree nuts and peanuts and sesame seeds (which they said means pretty much all seeds)....but the tree nuts are really bad.....
