Blood test for allergies in infant? Tricia♥ [+4Boys] 4 kids; Indiana 5813 posts25th Feb '13
One of my almost 8 month old twins will be allergy tested on Thursday, through a blood draw, since he is too young for the skin test. Has anyone on here had this done on their child? Did they have you stop giving them antihistamines before the blood test? They told me 72 hours and most websites say that for the blood test, you don't need to stop them. I gave him Zyrtec last night and he won't have anymore until after his test, but I'm just nervous that even though they told me 72 hours, that it could still affect the results. He has severe eczema and also has had hives for a week and a half. I guess I am just looking for anyone else's experience with this.
