In March we made the 3 hour drive to take Punkin to our immunologist. During our 4 hour appointment, we saw a resident, our doctor, our dietician, and 4 different nurses. It was a long day!
What did we learn? I don't feel like we learned much.
Punkin was allergy-tested and everything was negative - not even a little bit positive. Her skin test showed nothing!
So, we learned that she has eczema - which we already knew. But we don't have a real reason of why hers is so severe.
We don't have a very exciting action plan other than lots of cool tub soaks, lots of lotion, keeping her cool, using a humidifier, and using even more lotion.
I think I'm still in shock that her test results were negative. I'm just not sure how confident I am with those results. She's so much like Bee with her symptoms and yet the doctor believes she has no allergies.
We'll keep on with our tub soaks and lotion regime and the we'll go back in November. I'm hoping to have some type of answer. It's discouraging to hear that she has eczema with no real reason as to why.
