    After a 3 hour appointment, with a doctor we hadn't seen since ds was 14m old, we did 25 skin tests (1 control), and drew 4 vials of blood.
    1. He's not allergic to anything
    2. He thinks ds has Iga immune deficiency due to hx of chronic sinusitis, cellulitis, and shingles.

    I should get the results next week. I am definitely interested in finding out what's going on.

    I told you about my daughter who has to avoid milk and gluten or she is a difficult child. Hers is not an allergy with an IgE response, which is what the skin tests look for, so it would not show up on that kind of testing. The testing you had doesn't rule out this kind of problem.

    I hope ds tolerated the testing and blood draw well.
