Anybody here go to an allergist, like it?
I was dragged as a kid, hated it, fought through it, sort of attained equilibrium w/ managing my situation solo once I was living on my own.
Now my son (turning 8 tomorrow) is showing some allergies, I'm wondering if we should try to do something about it or just focus him on a combination of toughing it out and avoiding things that make it worse. I am skeptical of allergists but willing to work against that skepticism if I could hear success stories.
Nothing food related as far as we can tell, mostly just the usual plants and animals, and apparently perfumes, it was pretty attention-getting the other day when the smell of the detergent aisle in the supermarket set him off to gasping. (But not wheezing).
He's otherwise active and healthy, pretty vigorous actually.
