How are your LO's this time of year when it comes to allergies and asthma?

I'm just curious because whenever A.J goes outside he starts to get the watery eyes, congestion, and cough.. He only has had one asthma attack last summer when he was outside.. But we were not outside that often.

My Ped said they don't test for environmental allergies at his age, but I wonder if he does have it since this is second go around with the seasons..

It could be seasonal allergies. Jeremy doesn't seem to have allergies his are more cold induced. Hopefully his meds will keep him from having his flare up.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

Do you have allergy covers on his pillow and mattress? Dust mite allergies can easily be triggered when he goes to bed. Danny had that problem as well. It hasn't gone away with the covers but it has lessened the severity.

Danny has a nasty red throat due to drainage that will never come out the front. His drainage ALWAYS goes back in his throat so it gets really red and sore. His glands are also really swollen and (with perfect timing ) his white blood cell counts have dropped to 1,900. 5000+ is normal. I am hoping he will get through this cycle without a problem but we will have to see what happens. :/ Danny's allergist refused to test Danny for seasonal allergies until he was three so that it would only have to be done once and then again in several years maybe. When he was 11 months old he went in for his first allergist visit for food allergies but his allergist said that he had an allergic nose which means even if all the environmentals they could test for came back negative he would still treat him for seasonal or enviro allergies.... If your child shows symptoms of allergies the doc can treat the symptoms even without knowing the exact trigger.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

Thanks ladies..

A.J has his 18 month check up in a week, so I'm going to bring up he's symptoms then.. Maybe he will be big enough to start medications for seasonal allergies..
