Allergist

For those following along, the allergist says Joey isn't allergic to anything. The improvements we saw with the prednisone are not connected with allergic anything. The rash he's had since the day he was born is "follicular"- it seems to be following his hair follicles- and isn't itchy, so that's not an allergy. According to the allergist. He says to give the kid eggs, and if the rash comes back, pop an anthisthamine into his mouth, and if he gets better in 2-3 hours, then call the doc back; but otherwise, just tell our docs.

I did tell our docs. They told me to make an appointment with the allergist.

And so it goes.

We were told the same by an allergist----I just shrugged and keep my observations to myself! (And to my fellow/sister parents, and friends in the autism community.)

Oy vey! Sounds like the same thing we got about some weird nighttime behavior Nik went through from Sept-Feb. The GI said call the Neuro who said call the Ped who said call the GI who said call the Neuro...

Well that give me another good reason to leave the allergy / food intolerance nightmare hovering around 3 on my 'to do' list. Maybe it's just me but the ambiguity [right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing] drives me completely batty.
Cheers
