I just received feedback from my son's dermatologist regarding his allergy tests. It turns out that he is allergic to eggs and all types of nut, 5 different types of grass and 6 different tree pollens! How on earth do I keep this under control? I don't even know how I would tell which type of grass is which or which tree is which!!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

i am allergic to grass and trees most people will laugh the 1st time you tell them the second one btw.

i find that i only have an attack when they are in certain stages either flowering so full off pollen dropping seeds or being cut.

as for the medication try claratin from your doctor its a stronger dose than what you can buy over the counter my dr prescribed it for my son and it works so much quicker and better than anything i have bought.

I personally have severe allergies and i'm also allergic to grass and pollen. Grass usually doesn't bother me unless i roll around in it for a while. Pollen however, gives me every day problems. I have been on benadryl since the age of 3. Avoid flower gardens, heavily wooded areas, and always keep something like benadryl handy. Other than that, there isn't much that can be done to prevent nature.

i would just take precaution and give him an anti-histamine, regardless of what tree or grass. How old is your son? I want to do allrgy testing on him also, but Im not sure of the steps. He will be 2 in July. Good luck!
