My daughter was diagnosed with a peanut allergy in March. The doctor scheduled a three month follow-up. I called and cancelled because I said she hadn't had any contact or problems. The doc agreed to cancel, but he rescheduled for two months later (July). I asked why I had to have a follow-up and was told that he just likes to keep up with them. My question is does anyone else's allergist require these visits? I understand it with enviromental allergies, but not food. Once a year seems adequate to me. Her pediatrician joked that they just wanted my money ... he could be right.

We are going every few months, but thats because she is so young and has some triggers still that we are unsure of. If she is doing great, then I would just ask to reschedule for that one yr from the 1st appt.
Michelle Mom To:
Is she borderline for an Epi or benadryl dose or anything? Do they do more testing at those visits? Danny goes at least every 4 months but is usually there every month because he is also his asthma doctor. We have developed three new allergies just since November though so keeping close tabs on danny isn't exactly optional at this point. If she isn't developing anyting, isn't having problems, and the ped is okay with watching epi and benadryl doses per weight I would say call and just schedule a one year or cancel the ones they schedule until the one year mark...it seems odd... If he had never seen her before he may just want to make sure that there are no enviro issues or something... Maybe go back for the first visit and then if it is just weird only agree to yearly check ins and say you will call if anything changes...
