My son had skin prick test. It was on his back so he couldn't actually see.
I just thought I'd update this thread, we had a visit to the gp this evening. Her fear is so bad, even just to get her into the gp was a huge effort. She cried the whole way there and once I managed to get her out of the car she screamed and clung onto the building door frame. The receptionist thought we were there because she'd had an accident, she was making so much noise I managed to calm her down by *promising* her there would be no needles, but I wasn't allowed to say the I word (injection) and she is still upset now, an hour later and safely at home
Anyway the gp was helpful, she said yes maybe she can be tested through controlled challenge but the allergist is the person to discuss that with, and she gave me a referral. (It would be difficult considering some reactions take hours to show up).
But she also took me seriously about the needle phobia and gave us a referral to a child psych yay! At first I was sorry I had brought dd6 to the appt because she was so distressed, but the up side is the gp saw how distressed she was just having a doctor's visit with no procedure.
Anyway that's where we're at, thanks to everyone who replied. Poor dd6, I feel so sorry for her
