My son has allergies, but we can't find what triggers it/them. We took him in to have tests done, but it's done by pricking you with many small needles, each laced with a different allergy inducing thing. If the prick spot develops a bump, you are allergic to that "thing". So, he's allergic to a few thing like a few tree species, cockroaches, etc. How the hell this happened I don't know, we never coddled him or kept him from going outside. Regardless, he wouldn't allow them to do the second run because of all the needles, so we have an incompletle picture. And the doctor we went to closed shop, so if we do this again, we have to start all over...which probably won't happen. And the kid looks like he just ran naked through a thorn bush. He's got itchy spots all over. We tried to reason with him telling him he's going to feel super self conscious when he gets older. He keeps scratching and some of those spots are turning into scars. And we've tried holding back certain foods to see if they trigger, see if it's the laundry detergent, tried all sorts of allergy drugs, lotions, herbal extracts...none of it seems to work.
