Allergic to Peanuts

Elsie has had reactions to eggs and to peanut butter. Obviously, after she had the first reaction, I didn't give it to her anymore. But, I really wanted to know for sure if she was actually allergic to them.

We changed insurance, and bla bla bla, but we finally went. I was actually surprised that they did not test for many things - ONLY what we already knew she had reactions to.

Anyway, this pic was taken about 1 minute after the start of the scratch test. She had a mild reaction to the egg, but a large reaction to the peanuts.

The reaction got much worse - but she would not sit still for a second for me to get a non-blurry pic.

We went and got additional blood work to check levels and were given an Rx for an epipen. Fun times.

gotta love the back rolls lol
