Baked Milk Challenge Test

Yesterday we were to have a challenge test of eating baked milk in a muffin.  We were disappointed, at least I was, not to complete the actual eating of the muffin because the skin prick with the muffin was large enough to stop the test.  The doctor and my son decided that we would try again in six months.  I was outvoted.  I’ve been crabby the rest of the day—disappointed, frustrated and worried.

After a bit more reading, I learned that now most kids outgrow their dairy allergy by age 16.  I’ve also learned that baked milk consumption can improve the odds and can accelerate the outgrowing of the dairy allergy.  So I will put my worn-out, old, invisable “patience” hat back on and wait for the next opportunity to try again. 

Normally I can carry on with my day-to-day activities without giving much thought to my eleven year-old’s allergies.  But these visits to the allergist really stir up that pot for me.  It is so draining emotionally.  So many worries about kids and this just adds another big ingredient to that list with which parents must contend.
