Hi there

We have our first appointment with the allergy consultant on Thursday morning, my DD has a suspected milk allergy.

Is there anything I need to know, or questions I should ask?

Thanks x

what are the symptoms? If its a true allergy with rashes don't give antihistamine as it will affect the skin prick tests. Blood tests won't be affected.

Ask if they think it is milk protein allergy or lactose intolerance and how often your child will be retested.
