I suspect my 4 yo has some food and environmental allergies. I would like to avoid the typical "scratch tests" as I have heard they are not very accurate, esp on young children. We have been doing an elimination diet w/ fair results for about 6 mo now, but I suspect there are some other things going on w/ him. His symptoms manifest themselves as behavioral problems which leads everyone (except myself) to believe that he just needs better discipline, etc.
I've looked into seeing an environmental allergist for P/N testing, but there are none that close to me plus none are covered by our insurance as far as I can tell. In the long run, I would rather him be free from allergies (if he indeed does have them) rather than treating them (w/ meds or neutralization drops).
I guess my questions are what allergies have you had treated? How is the testing and treatment done? Is this expensive?
