DD1 had her allergy test today. It has been 2.5 yrs since her last one.
The good news is that she is no longer allergic to macadamia nuts.
The not so good news is that she is still ana to cashews and allergic to pistachio's. However the severity of the reaction has reduced since last time. The cashew reaction 2.5 yrs ago was 19mm this time it was only 7mm. So still requiring an epi-pen.
The dr is hopeful that she may be in that 20% bracket of children that outgrow their nut allergies.
She will go back towards the end of next year for another test before the dr retires.
In the mean time, it is business as usual in avoiding cashews and pistachio's.
