A tough few days with itchy skin for MyItchyBoy at the moment. A bit of a runny nose and chesty cough and he’s flared up quickly in about 24 hours. It doesn’t help that he had one night with a bit of a temperature, which tends to bring up a heat rash on top of the eczema.
In other news, the RAST blood test results we got back last week were not particularly conclusive. I am expecting an appointment to come through soon so we can go and discuss them with the allergy consultant.
I was interested to see that egg came back negative. His skin always flared up after eating it and the scratch test on his skin over a year ago came back as positive.
It is encouraging though and we might have a go at introducing egg again. To start with, inside a baked cake I think, to take it slow. First have to wait out the current flare-up before trying anything so we can get a clear picture of any reaction.
The fish reaction was not confirmed by the tests and for some reason the most important one: dairy, was completely missed off.
