Miss 9 had her annual skin prick test for her peanut allergy this afternoon.
Last year, the result was hopeful. Her reaction to the peanut allergen was slightly smaller.
Which made us quite happy.
So, we were hoping that it would show promising result today as well.
When we got there, the specialist tested her with 8 allergens.
This is how he did it.
He divided the are inside the forearm into grids by drawing on it with a pen.
Then, he put a small drop of different allergen in liquid form onto each of the grid.
Kalau lagi banyak allergen yang dia nak guna untuk test, lagi banyak lah the petak2 tu.
Then, he used the smallest needle to make a small prick piercing the droplet into the skin.
Tadi he tested her for some tree nuts and also peanut and something else.
This photo was taken a few minutes after the specialist did the skin prick test. You can’t really see much,
Tadi, Miss 9 tak meraung dah bila kena cucuk sebab dah biasa kot, hehehe.
Lepas tu, we had to wait for about 10 minutes for the reaction to take place.
This photo pulak was taken a few minutes after the first photo was taken.
From here, you can clearly see which one is the peanut grid, hehehehe. Yang other smaller lumps to are tree nuts.
We thought it was getting smaller.
Tapi bila the specialist had a look at it and compared it to last year’s reaction, it was actually a bit bigger!
And then he said something which made us so sad…..
“It looks like she’s developing some reactions to other nuts. That can happen in some peanut allergy sufferer as they get older. But it’s nothing to worry about yet.”
Last year she showed a small reaction to pecan only….
That cannot be happening!!!!!!!!
Macam mana I nak buat sambal kacang mahal and biskut gajus mazola if she becomes allergic to them too!
He told us to eat loads of tree nuts last year so Miss 9 pun bantai lah makan banyak2 and he still says that Miss 9 can continue to eat other nuts as normal…
But…..kalau next year nya test bertambah teruk…..what to do……
